I didn't see your coin before posting mine...
Your coin seems to be of the same type as the one posted by aws dated 1271 :

These popular coins are very attractive and seems to have been in use for a long time; It is quite easy today to find gold or silver coins in XF grade but I have never seen these humble copper coins in mint state...
