My understanding is that a groat is the traditional name of a long-defunct English silver coin worth four English pennies, and also a Scottish coin originally worth fourpence, with later issues being valued at eightpence and one shilling. Could be wrong. Good old English history you have there.

What's the value of something like that silver if any? , I've never seen or heard of one of those before "Groat", well done. I have been wanting a metal detector for some time. Keep sharing your inspiring me to get started.

Thanks Silver Rocket, there is value in these coins and all these i am showing are all silver, but each coin has a rating of of its own or grading, but a lot have been worn due to circulation, this one full coin would be worth between £65- £145 , but this coin is damaged so it is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it mate
