The top line in the hexagon seems to be zarb, so I'd expect the mint to be directly below...

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

Dear Peter, yes the top line is " Zarb ضرب " and the bottom line within the field is " Tabriz تبريز ". For the second coin the mint looks like " Jazira جزيره ", (altaycoins).

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".

I think your right Maythem, in hand I can see a clear Jim although no further letters can be made out

Thank you Vic, with high contrast you can see the dot after the letter " Jeem ج " positioned similar to the attached photo of altycoins.
