This I think might be too worn to work out unfortunately.
Posting here in hope!

There is a similar coin listed in Krause, #A112,  Ra'nash mint...

You should never give up hope  :) it is not Ra'nash but Meshhed
This trotting lion is characteristic; see this post (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,34330.msg216686.html#msg216686) or this other one (https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=106882).

Thanks Saro, undoubtedly the same type :)


Should have posted the weight, sorry, - 12.4g quite a bit lighter than the other examples.
