    Cropping your photos, making sure the are in focus, and good lighting would be helpful.

    The crosses keys are a symbol of the city of Riga, Latvia, right?
    I got this "Polish" solidus a while ago and had a hard time finding it in the book.
    Turns out is was from Polish-occupied Livonia, 1612
    So I agree with Bradley Trotter. There are many different versions of the text on
    the perimeter in this era, so if the text doesn't exactly match the picture in Numista
    that's not necessarily cause for concern.

    Nicely done, @Bradley Trotter. “Eastern European, late medieval” was all I was prepared to venture, since I had a hard time squinting at the pictures on my phone. The crossed-keys motif was puzzling to me, oriented the way it is in the pictures, but now that you’ve provided the Numista comparison, it’s clearer.

    What's more important? What the coin is or it's value?

    First find out what it is. Worry about value afterwards. Nobody has given you the value yet so I assume it's nothing major.

    If @Bradley Trotter's attribution is correct, as I suspect it is, here are some eBay comparisons.

    Were I to speculatively pull a number out of thin air for this coin, based on its appearance, I would guess $20-25-ish. Take that for the wild guess it is.
