Gorilla tape also comes in white (for reference only... doubt you'll want it in white!) Not seen it in clear myself.
For a hole the size of a coin, there's no need for patches of anything. The Gorilla tape will do the job perfectly on it's own, stuck directly over the hole. Round off all corners (or cut into a circle/oval). Do both sides of the hole.
Maybe consider Gorilla underneath, and Tenacious tape on top (also rounded off), as I have successfully done, but I'm sure the Gorilla tape will be fine on top too. Maybe decide which looks better on top, as they'll both work. Mine was on a SIG, so hidden by a carpet. (6" slash - neither tape has ever come off, and it's never leaked!)
Ooh... Gorilla Tape may seem expensive, but it really is good stuff. I've folded and taped a few footprints with it (to reduce the size), so always getting wet etc, and I haven't had any peel back/off to date, and some of them were done 3 years ago now!
Ooh... again... when you've used that 0.005% of the roll of tape, shove the remainder in a sealable sandwich bag/similar, and leave it in the spares bag/box, or in with the pegs/mallet etc, so you always have it to hand when away. I hear it's also good for taping up exploded air beam sleeves, amongst many other uses!!
Gorilla tape is also available off the shelf in half-decent DIY warehouses and tool shops... not sure how price compares with the likes of Amazon etc.
