MontCollector, I knew it looked familiar! Indeed, some detail on the leaf is lost (a weak strike or the effect of the coin being in a mint bag?). Certainly wouldn't grade well The lines by the date, I've seen those before on the 2015 and 2016-dated small coins, those must have originated at the mint.

Anyway, here's a poor specimen of Prussian 1/2 silbergroschen:

Here are some of my most enigmatic and poorly understood coins which also happen to be tiny:

Sogdian kingdom, Samarqand (Uzbekistan)
Silver "obol"
Ca. 100 - 600 AD
9-12mm, about 0.5-0.75g
Obv: Highly abstracted male portrait
Rev: Archer (Apollo?) holding bow, legend degraded to dots





Soghd was a silk road era kingdom centered on Samarqand (still inhabited, present day Uzbekistan.) They were usually subjugated to various empires, but nevertheless prospered as one of the few oases of civilization in the vast stretches of central Asia. They are believed to have originally been based on a Greek coin of one of the Antiochuses of the Seleucid empire (I have seen one that still retains a legend "Basilews Antioxoy" or King Antiochus). Most originate from just a handful of hoards, nearly all of which were found in the last 20 years; this grouping would have cost hundreds or thousands of dollars in the 1980s or early 90s. Interestingly, to compensate for their extremely thin fabric, these coins were given a slightly cupped shape to reinforce the edges that clearly were still prone to tearing or breaking.

These coins are well known to Russian collectors; English literature on them is incredibly sparse. Nobody knows who they depict or even which century of the first millennium they were produced during.
