This specimen was lot 1654 in Jean Elsen sale 117 (Brussels, June 2013), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted,

Obverse: crowned ornate shield with Order of the Golden Fleece around; reverse: Madonna and Child in a Glory, seated on a cloud. Slight clip, very fine to extremely fine.)"
This type is recorded for 1624-25 and is listed as fairly common, which may more because of a plethora of similar designs (arms obverse, Madonna and Child reverse) issued in the 1620's.
