I think this is Y#36, the date apparently is in words if anyone can decipher it for me please  :)  The coin seems to have a very high silver content & these photo's don't really do it justice as it looks really shiny & attractive in my hand but rather dull on the photo's, UNC condition

Tibetan coins are dated in cycles of 60 years. Cycle 15-60 = AD1926
and cycle 16-1 = AD1927
The dating of these coins is in words and is as follows:
Starting 2 o'clock on reverse: Rab Chung (=cycle) 16, followed by Lo (=year) 20.
Cycle 16-year 20 = 1946. Ref.: Y#26.

Thank you guys for recommending my date conversion app :D
In this case, the date is 16-20, corresponding to 1946 AD.

If the owner of the coin doesn't mind, I will add the side with the date to the illustrative part for Tibet.
