The peacock is seen on some afghan and iranian civic coppers, here it seems that the visible letters are not in persian but in gurmukhi and if I am not wrong that indicates that it's a Sikh coin (may be from Derajat area as your other coin?) ???

"SIKH EMPIRE: AE falus (7.63g), Peshawar, VS18(91), KM-95, Herrli-13.04.11, peacock left, mint name in Persian / date in Nagari, text in Gurmukhi"
