Today, when I went through my collection of Malay States Sultanate coins, I found my piece. This coin with the petalled flower was commonly called Pitis or Keping Matahari (Sun Coin). The petals probably represent the open lotus flower of the Buddhists and reflects Siamese influence. And there were variety of 4 petals, 5 petals, 6 petals and 8 petals minted on gold, copper and tin material.
