Well, it is certainly Shiite, because of the lower line in the center of the left picture: على ولى الله "Ali wali Allah". that's part of the Shia version of the Kalima. My first guess would be Fatimid. Unfortunately a bit stressed on time now, so no opportunity to try to read the entire legend at the moment.

Had hoped someone would shave stepped in with a straightforward attribution by now.
From your photo i'd go for Al-Zahir (411-427AH) (Top line center right picture), Misr mint (outer margin right picture, six-o'clock) 418AH.
Check this Zeno category (https://www.zeno.ru/showgallery.php?cat=5918).

I have one much like this beautiful dinar, only it is from 419 AH. Manzikert helped a lot to make it readable, see here (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,32414.msg204685.html#msg204685).
