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

They are from Yemen, from the time of al-Mansur bi-Allah 'Ali (1775-1809), minted in Sana'a. The denomination is khamsiyyah (which, I believe, Is a five-fold harf). There's a similar coin in the Zeno database at #81086 (https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=81086).

Best regards,
Vincent
