The coin is from the Provincia Guiana, which belonged then to Venezuela. Since 1899 it is part of (British) Guayna.

As Gerard did the only "official" try, it is to him now for the next question.  :)

Regarding the style of the coin Yemen was not a so bad guess, but Darfur is the better one. The date occurs strange: AH 1327/71. The 71 regards to his grandfather's reign as the last Sultan of Darfur. So the real date is AD 1908.

Now it's your turn!  :D

No answer so I will help you
About these "coins" Lingen wrote : "The listing in the KM have given the above type some legitimisation to them as coins, but they should be regarded as weights."
The picture on Krause shows the same reverse of a similar type.
