Not Iran but from Kashgar I think:
left scan :" 'abdul aziz khan" (+/- 1290-5 ?)
right scan : "zarb latif Kashgar"

Spot on saro!  don't think these are very common, there are 3 or 4 similar on zeno listed under Eastern Turkestan.

Nice catch, capn. All Sinkiang coins are very hard indeed to find. Excellent conversation piece as well showing diversity in the Chinese empire that (still) threatens Chinese political stability. You can be proud of this one.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I seem to have 4 of them from that 1960's mystical bag of coins that yielded so many nice coins, trying to identify them I scanned KM Iran/ Afghanistan etc but didn't think of China  ::)

According to a similar coin on zeno   `Abd al-`Aziz,  is the name of the Ottoman Sultan which confuses the plot even more  :o
