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

Thank you Maythem,
Following you ID, I found this intersting information on vcoins:
Reverse: Kalima in Mihrab style design that is formed from arabic word fasayakfikahom ( He will suffice ye against them), arranged to resemble a mihrab, from Quran 2:137
You said:
Reverse: Center: لا اله الا الله محمد رسول الله , 鏑a Ilah Ila Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah; meaning: No God but God, Muhammad is the messenger of God. In between words ضرب بغداد , Zarb Baghdad.
So mint should be Baghdad, bu I can't see this  :-[

Dear maudry, sorry about that, it is my mistake and I have removed it. It was a copy from previous ID.
