I can't easily find the leaf type, either, but the left could possibly be laurel, so I'll add one point (won't change the winner).

Numisma - 47.6
bd251 - 46
Finn235 - 45
Dorado - 42.5

Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

With pleasure! This is another matching round.

Electorate of Saxony, Holy Roman Empire. Silver spitzgroschen (1/2 groschen), Leipzig mint, dated (14)75.



Detail of the date- trust me, this says 75.



Scoring:

3 Pre-1500 and dated in the Julian calendar
2 Pre-1500 and dated in another calendar
1 Pre-1500 and undated, but known to have been minted in a particular year
5 Dated 1475
3 Minted in 1475, but undated
1 Minted between 1450 and 1500, or in another '75 year
2 Includes only some date digits (e.g. 75 or 475, but not 1475)
2 Uses obsolete letter or number forms
2 Minted in Leipzig
1 Minted in Germany, or what is now Germany
1 Issued by a subdivision of a larger political entity
1 Silver
1 1/2 unit denomination
1 No person or other animal

Bonus: 1 point per shield or coat of arms. This includes coats of arms within coats of arms!

Finn- I actually considered using my Ptolemaic drachm, but that might be a bit unfair now.

Indeed it does! My intent was to include a few criteria that would be viable for modern coins.

Sorry if I wasn't clear. I meant letters and numerals specifically, so you could count an ash or a Lombardic N, but not a dead language. I'll give you the half point for the German connection, though.

Standings:
Princetane:  7
Dorado:      4
bd251:       3
jbuck:       3

I don't have any 15th-century coins, but I can get a few points:

1751 Mexico 1/2 real




1 Issued by a subdivision of a larger political entity
1 Silver
1 1/2 unit denomination
Bonus: 1 point per shield or coat of arms.

4 points




Edit: the shield combines several coats of arms, but I'm not sure about how it should be scored.
In Memory of Crazyb0 12-26-1951 to 7-27-2020
In Memory of Tootallious 3-31-1964 to 4-15-2020

I probably have something with more points, but this is the coin that immediately came to mind.
You'd have to rotate the pic 90 degrees. I swear it was the right way up when I uploaded it...



Nurnberg pfennig, ca. 1457 AD (probably minted for multiple years)
Kellner 118?, apparently Numista 132930

1 Minted between 1450 and 1500
2 Uses obsolete letter or number forms (...I don't think anyone uses an N like that any more)
1 Minted in Germany, or what is now Germany
1 Issued by a subdivision of a larger political entity (...does a Free Imperial City count?)
1 Silver
2 Shields/coats of arms

8 total, I think.
