"few abstract lines and points are called symbolism?"

yeah, could be. But this coin is just a mess, not abstraction.

Strange? Ugly! 

There's no more art on coins...few abstract lines and points are called symbolism?

Barbara, Gräfin von Cilli (Barbara, Countess of Celje) was a Holy Roman Empress as spouse of Emperor Sigismund (reign 1433-1437). Cilli is the German name of the town Celje in modern time Slovenia. I believe the Slovenes would rather call her ''Barbara Celjska'' instead of her German name-title.
