This small billon or silver coin is the size of a solidus or schilling.

I have been unable to find the exact type in KM or Numista.

can you help, please?


The crowned reverse reads SIG III D G REX POL MDI

the weight is 0.83 grams

if you're wondering why the two sides look a different colour, it's because I can't use the Magnifier app properly. I found a YouTube video explaining how to use it but the controls seem to be for a different version.

I sold off all my old coins of Europe, but might point you in one right direction.
Sigis III D.G. Rex Poloniae Magnus Dux Livon. Russ.Prusiae
Grand Duke of Livonia, Russia, Prussia (Poland).
KM has not been good for illustrating minors, they usually cataloged the larger silver coins.
Davenport could list it. Sorry, but really no help.
Just been out of old Europe coinage for many years.

I indeed believe it could be this grossus, with a diameter of 18.5mm and a weight of 0.63g

@bart got it in numista. Krause is just horrible for Poland in this era, and this one is a good example.

It is this listing, which has a correct description but the wrong photo: https://www.NGCcoin.com/price-guide...duid-1545139
