The Afghan civic coins were usually valid for one year only. Old coins had to be taken to the mint to be exchanged for new ones (at a small fee, of course :)). The old coins were often not re-melted, but overstamped.

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

Thanks, Dear Peter! but 1 year falus validity sounds really strange for me cause during my more than a year stay in Kabul I had dozens of falus passing through my hands and I've never seen any re-strike or overstamp :-\
