Square  civic coppers with two fish exist fo Qandahar, but they are of a different style and design. (see Val. 9 / p.171). This coin is, I think, an iranian coin from Resht mint.
As you noticed, it is dated 13xx and is lighter than other known coins of this type with earlier dates.

Maybe this coin and anusin's coin were produced by a similar die, applied to overstrike different coins?
