Although medieval coins were cast in silver, our replicas are cast in lead free pewter. So as to prevent fraud each coin is marked as a replica on the reverse.
In addition to coins, the pouch or purse could also contain other items, much as we carry in our handbags and pockets today. Practical items such as tiny mirrors and entertainment paraphernalia such as jettons, deck of cards and dice were not uncommon for both the gentleman and the lady.
