Added this to show how small it is, setting beside a 1834 half dime

Thanks for the link , so I'm thinking late 1800s then!
The year breakdown is there, but from being worn it's hard to make out what lip is on her. Lol
I have'n explored another commonwealth country that might of had a small Vickie silver.
Example the Three-Halfpence was only 12mm

If it's the same diameter as your 1834 U.S. half dime, it looks to be an 1858-9 Canadian 5c "fish scale". That should be bigger than a U.S. silver 3 cent coin, but, smaller than the U.S. 3c nickel piece.
