Umayyad fals, probably c.700-750 AD. I'll see if I can be more precise when I get home this evening.

I'm pretty sure it is:

Abd al-Malik bin Yazid, governor and finance director in Misr (Egypt), first tenure 133-136 H (751-754 AD), dated 133 H
SICA Vol.2, 1565-1571.

One characteristic is the 'bismillah' above the kalima on the obverse.
