I see some thing like a mace (gada) on the center of the immage to the left. Of the balance inscription, I am unable to make a meaning. Can some one please help?

It think this is a poor copy/counterfeit coin of Ahilya Bai

This is typical a paisa that has been attributed to Dhar, however on the obverse mostly Hanuman is depicted. For reference to the early Dhar State coins see: ONS-NL 82-83 (Febr.-April 1983), The early copper coins of Dhar State by Ken Wiggins.

The weight of the coin is 15.95g and the diameter is 20 to 21mm.
