Hi All,
In my collection I have a coin I can't identify yet. Perhaps someone here has seen it before? It happens to look like a Italian or Malta mint. This is what I think due to the cross and open dots arround. It could be swiss aswell but that migth be far fetched...

Does anyone have any idea about this one?

Reverse might have PHILI... but I cannot make out the design (possibly double struck?).

I think this type of cross might be used on Crusader states of the MIddle East, maybe some other places? Maybe we can see S I ? ? N. I checked denaros of Siena (Italy) but did not find a match (cross is not quite the same, and never anything in the angles)

The reverse looks like a garden from PHILIPS II. But the coin must be 150 years older then 1550's. We have them in the netherlands on dutch duiten from Holland and Zeeland but they are a few hundred years later.
Als none excist with a cross and a cross like this we don't have on dutch coins.

Navarre has some things that might be close:

On the date (or era), the font looks fairly modern. I would expect gothic lettering if the coin were from early 1400s . I would guess 1500 or later.

Edit: Maybe in your second photo, if it is rotated about 30 degrees clockwise, we see a large N in center, with a pellet to the side, so this could be a match?
