Yes, it is Poland 1/2 Grosz (půłgrosz in Polish). On the Crown side (Obverse) there is the name of the ruler, but I can't read it. Try finding the same here https://www.fortresscatalogue.com/index2.php?page=Coins_Catalogue&search_request=p%C3%B3%C5%82grosz&page_number=3

Andrey5   Many thanks for your help!
Probably the 1/2 Grosz could be of Johan Albert I
my problema is
the side of the shield I can read  MONETA .....
the side of the crown I can read .... (REGIE)  POLONI
and I don't find any coin like this.

Crown type is Sigismund I (1506-1548), design is for half groschen. Legend is +REGIS+POLONI for the side with the eagle and MONETA (bottom of letters towards centre) and 15xx SIGISM (upside down) or variety.
