Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".

I cannot see the date either. You'd have to presume that it is on the part that was hammered to provide more space for the hole, as I don't see where there could be a place on the rest of the coin, but maybe there is an undated version of this coin?

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

Thank you Peter, comparing this coin with the Mashhad mint, the date was under Mashhad above letter B of Zerb and near the center of the coin. May be this coin is undated.

This coin is the  Mitchiner nー2151 "Yazd 1258", ( I am not able to see the date on the Mitchiner picture ???) but it could be at right bottom corner ?

Thank you Saro, you are right about the place of the date, I could read two digits just before the hook solder "12xx", the solder is on top of the two digits on the right. It could be 1258 AH.
