...two cracking finds and the jetton is just superb. It is a Nuremberg jetton, but is by Wolf Lauffer II dating to AD 1612-1651. Here is a bit about the how the family took over:

Damianus and Hans Krauwinckel were brothers. Egidius and Hanns II were the sons of Damianus, and for a time they produced jetons together. The jetons of Hanns Krauwinckel II are the most common found. Hanns' sister, Barbara, married Georg Lauffer and, at the death of Hanns, the family concern was taken over by the Lauffer family. There were subsequently six generations of Lauffer jeton masters, and only two generations - Wolf Lauffer and his four sons - WOLFF LAUFFER II   master 1612, died 1651

...here is a general bit about jettons: http://www.ukdfd.co.uk/pages/nuremberg-jetons.html

...on your one the inscription on the obverse reads:  WOLF LAVFER IN NVRNBERG RECH (Wolf Lauffer of Nurenberg), obverse depicting three crowns alternately with three lis, arranged centrifugally around a central rose with 6 small heart-shaped petals.

...the inscription on the reverse reads: GOTES SEGEN MACHT REICH, which means; God’s blessing maketh rich (from Proverbs 10, 22), reverse depicting an imperial orb surmounted by a cross patty within a tressure with three main arches. Initial mark flower with central pellet and seven pellet petals.

...here are some examples, although your one is in superb condition!!!
