Legend obverse: gast ravej be-hokm-e lam-yazli / sekka-ye sultanat be-nam-e 'ali / zarb tabriz 1160. (By order of the Eternal One, coins of the sultanate in the name of 'Ali have become current. Struck at Tabriz 1160)

Thanks again Oesho!

On the web i found about a similar reverse: Shiite formula (Kalima) in centre, margins: names of twelve Imams around.

Hope this is here also correct as i see no difference.
