I thought that I had posted a similar coin, only not nearly in as good a condiiton. This 9.2 gram coin has a design on the obverse that belongs as wall paper for a children's playroom or bedroom: stars and moon anc gracefully curvilinear shapes.  I like the reverse too, but perhaps the scimitar is too military for children. 
It was minted in Jawad according to the Standard Catalog. That is a LONG way from Gwalior and must have been on the Western frontier of Gwalior State's domain.
