Coin ID Help: Ilkhan, 2 Dirham Abu Sa'id
« on: June 01, 2016, 02:41:39 AM »
Greetings! I came across this nice looking coin in a lot of medieval European coins recently. It looks like Arabic script to me, but can anyone help me narrow down the coin by year and country/ruler?

Thanks so much!

Size and metal would be a help too if you have it.

This is an Ilkhan issue. I am not so well known with these to provide an on the spot attribution though.

Ilkhan, as TH says, Abu Said (1317-1335), coin struck in Tabriz. I can't make out the date (partially off in the margin on the left image), but this design is Type G, struck 729-734 H, 1329-1334 AD.

The denomination is probably a double dirhem, c. 3.2 gm.

Thanks all for the input! The coin is 22 mm and weighs 3.3 grams... appears silver. I'll see if I can enlarge it where the date may be.
