Victoria florin

Kel found this in a local Rotorua park today. Was spoken to by a pompas member of the public about having permission, to dig up the park and possible damage to the roots of the tree. :roll_eyes:

How do you determine the date of one of these. Never heard of one before ?

The date is in Roman numerals to the right of the head starting with M… Total of 9 numerals. Google it should do it.
