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

If I'd been on my own, I would have found "zarb" and concluded that the name of the mint started with Mul... :) Glad you are doing these very educational transcriptions, Maythem.

I enlarged the Arabic script parts in your post, as the software had made them too small for my tired eyes.

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