Sigismund of Austria, Archduke of Further Austria (26 October 1427 – 4 March 1496) was a Habsburg archduke of Austria and ruler of Tirol from 1446 to 1490.
Those coins were minted in Meran (see MT#34, South Tyrol, present Merano in Italy) until 1477 when the mint was transferred to Hall (e.g. MT#38). The 4 pointed stars are controls, the 3 stars indicate Méran mint. The coins minted in Hall and meran may be difficult to distinguish. The double points at the crown of the eagle are attributed to Konrad Michelfelder (1477-1482) in Hall, as the 5 petal rosette with 2 points. The coin of the sheet is probably Méran, the following coin is attributed to Hall:
