This one is very similar to the previous one. But it has a different legend on the reverse... and the legend is not completely readable.
Size: 21mm
Weight: 3.56gr

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

Thank you Maythem,
So the two coins differ only slightly in the legend while I thought it was a more important difference.
