Hello,

I have probably an unusual question. I would like to ask for some help identifying some plants from an old Austrian banknote:

On the front, I think there are these plants:
- Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca) to the left
- European chestnut (Castanea sativa) to the right
- Alpine daisy (Leucanthemopsis alpina) on the bottom
- Moneywort (Lysimachia nummularia) below the daisy
- ? I cannot identify the one at the top.

On the back:
- Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) to the left
- Grapevine (vitis) with grapes to the right
- Alpine cinquefoil (Potentilla crantzii) on the bottom right
- ? I can't identify the one on the bottom left.

They are most likely all indigenous to Austria.

Thank you!

@Tetters thank you very much!
I think Alchemilla must be the right one on the back.
Liverwort may be right for the front one, but I think I've seen this plant around and it's a bit different. If I picture it right, it's more like a vine that grows on the ground and the leaves don't have this shiny skin texture like the liverwort.
Best regards
