This is a nice Tudor silver halfgroat of king Henry VIII, minted at Canterbury between 1526 - 1532 A.D. The obverse bears a young portrait of Henry. The reverse W.A. beside the royal arms, these initials denote the coin was struck under the authority of the Church - in this case, William Warham Archbishop of Canterbury.
