No, Artukids of Mardin, Nejm al Din Ghazi, 1239-1260, struck at Mardin c.1248-1258. See https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=162494

The Khwarezm ones are much cruder, and the very similar Ayyubid coins have more flowing script.

We all have. I commend you for making an attempt to id the coin yourself before asking the question. Even if you are wrong, you get experience in where to look, what to look for and how to look. You gain exposure to pictures that give you those "gut feelings" that will be increasingly reliable and eventually, the confidence to help others.

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

Hi Peter,
That's what I try generally to do - with more or less success - except when I don't have the beginning of a clue.
For this one for instance I was wrong  :)
