    I would suggest that the original poster examine the coin and post the coin inscriptions.

  • I am able to read the partial lettering around the eagle: " I.Z.ROMA.IMP.SEM "

    The weight is 1,12 grams.

    That's not quite the correct coin - it's definitely Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II, but the coat of arms and reverse inscriptions are different, so it's from a different city-state.

    It's also not a 2 kreuzer / half batzen. I think the number written inside the Imperial orb on the eagle's chest might be "24", not "2", which would indicate this coin is a 1/24th thaler, or groschen.

    I couldn't find a match just by Googling. I'll have to go look up some actual books.
