Schuette & Sigrid Muller-Christensen (no ISBN on my copy) through ILL, I'm
almost certain that such a pattern was shown on a piece of garb in there.
Just a minute -
There's a branch-and-ivy band with a vine&flower motif just under it, from
lower Saxony (Weinhousen), late 15th century.
an exquisite open-scrolling vine and leaf interspersed with figures at
tourney and the battle of St. George and the dragon (with maiden waiting on
the side), lower Rhine, early 15th century
There's more, sufficient to support that style of embroidery. Your coin's
pattern will probably fit right into the genre and be unexceptional.
