I found this coin at work. I don't know what country it is from, but it is brittish or brittish commonwealth. I have found many with the image of George IV on the obverse, but none with what's on the reverse.
It looks like a five petal flower with a shield on top. The shield has a large cross in the middle of it.
The obverse says, "Georgivs VI D:G:BR:OMN:REX".
The reverse says, "FID:DEF:IND:IMP 1943 THREE PENCE".

If you know what this is, where it came from, &/or what it's worth; please let me know.
Thanks a million.

hello , i am a novice but i may be ablle to help you a little. it sounds like you have an english 3 pence coin the ones i am thinking of are bronze in colour and have about 8 sides on the perimiter. i found an american coin yesterday in a local park with my metal detector,american forces were stationed in this area prior to the d-day invasion in 1944. the coin looks like a washington quater..cant make out the date and on the reverse is an eagle with spread wings,the coin seems to be copper coated with silver ,,,i hope the g.i who lost it survived ww2....regards mike...from plymouth area in devon england
