it reads : "Suleyman badshah Ghazi" with the sunni kalima on the other face.
I think that's a gold coin of Suleyman Mirza, cousin and rival of Akbar. (probably struck at Kabul before  he is driven out of the city by Akbar).
If I am right, it's a rarity... (a quarter of gold misqual )

confirmed: it's well a 1/4 ashrafi of Suleyman Mirza /  "Badakhshan type" see this one (https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=188414)
no date / no mint

And that is why I defer to the experts  ;D  Really nice coin, though.
