These Palembang pitis coins were likely strung together for long term storage, but were never retrieved. Instead, over the centuries, the coins have been fused together into one solid piece. This is a somewhat common occurrence with many types of coins, especially those that have been recovered from shipwrecks. Nonetheless, intact stacks like this are rare to come across.
