Beautiful circa 600CE Pyu coin with srivatsa (temple) and celestial symbols and rising sun, on reverse 1/2 unit sterling quality silver. This coin has been punctured and at one time had small silver loop soldered to it. These are still in use amongst the hilltribes in the Golden Triangle as jewelry ornaments. D: 1.1cm see last enlargement for reference to the closest one I could find.
