When the Port of  Malacca was developed in the 1980’s  the creek area was dredged so  many coins were found.   Very few gold, a few silver like this one and a lot of tin coins of the pre Portuguese  coin period to the Dutch occupation and even some EIC coins. That is why this is rather porous  – as it has been in the saline, saltwater, conditions for   some 350 years.
