It looks quite identifiable. If I could just find the place where the mint name should be...

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Kakwayhids gold dinars have a similar symbol upside, may be could you see in this way? (I am not at all expert in these coins and may be it's a wrong way..); on zeno you will find  few coins, not yours I'm afraid.

I think it is a dinar of the Great Seljuk Tughril Beg. The nearest I can find on Zeno is this one from Shiraz http://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=95854 but I'm afraid I can't read the mint and date on yours.
