Please open a different thread for different coins. They go to different boards.

The first, third and fourth coins are medieval dinars in kufic script. Date and mint are on the circular legend, but I do not read Arabic well enough to decipher it. There are others who can help you. The first and second pictures are upside down. The fifth picture should be rotated almost 45 CCW, the sixth and seventh are upside down. The eighth is correct.

The second and fifth coin are European medieval. The two may well be of the same type. The ninth picture is very good. Can you do a picture of the other side in this quality?

The two European coins are from Cologne, probably mentioning the name of emperor Heinrich III, but struck in the name of archbishop Annus (Anno) der Heilige 1056-1075. Dannenberg 390 var.

obv: bulleted cross, in the corners ANNvS, around +HENRICVS IMPER AVG or variant.
rev: church with AGRI / PNA in two lines. SCA COLONIA CIVIT (sancta colonia Agrippina civitatis - the holy establishment of Cologne city)

Your first coin with the Arab inscription is an Abbasid dirham. Can not read the mintname or date on your photos.

Your first coin is Samanid, a coin of Ahmad bin Ismail struck at al-Shash (Tashkent) in 298 H, SNAT XVb 263-264. The Abbasid caliph al-Muqtadir is named on the third line of the reverse.

Hi Alan, very instructive reply, thanks !
I already was pleased with myself i could detect the caliphs name, but it shows, i am still a
novice in this field.
