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

I am rather surprised to find I have the same coin, but I didn't recognise it immediately because mine is in even worse condition :)

Thank you Alan for showing this coin, the date on your coin is very clear 1241 AH. Nice coincidence to have a similar coin.

Thank You for showing! I guess we take the date from your coin and the mint name from my coin.  ;)

Thank you maudry, the diameter should be 20 mm.
The decoration is nice on your coin.

I think Maudry's coin is an overstrike. Just outside the double circle on the second picture, you can remnants of the host coin.

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

That is very possible.
At 9 o'clock in the field I see also some traces of a possible overstrike.

I have also corrected the diameter which is 22mm and not 2.
