|Data:||Ag, 0.24 g, 12.0 mm|
|Description:||The lily in center, radial lines around.|
|Notes:||It is a question: was this bracteate struck by Henning Scharpenberg or Riga domcapital? Both authorities had similar coat of arms - lily. My opinion is, that it is struck by Riga domcapital just after the monetary reform of the Livonia Confederation. Scharpenberg's lily had a different shape.|
