Just for fun here are the 1 mazuna (Y 14.1, 3,000,000) and 5 mazunas (Y 16.1 2,400,000) of this series. I'm looking for the 2 mazunas.

It should be read togther with the two lines above: ضرب بانڭلند, zarb fi bi angland - struck in England. This is not an usual way to present the mint in the Arabic tradition.

Thanks Peter, I had no idea what the rest meant. :)

Costa Rica 25 centavos 1893, KM#130. Nothing subtle about the large HEATON BIRMM mintmark on this one. The Birmingham mint produced all of Costa Rica's coins from 1889-1893.

El Salvador 1 centavo 1913, KM#106 and 3 centavos 1913, KM#107. These were the last issues produced for El Salvador by the Birmingham Mint.

Guatemala 1 real 1900, KM#177. Unusually, no mintmark on this one, although it was produced by Heatons.
