Some help reading the mint would be very much appreciated,
always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....


Hello Andyg
i think that is Fes Hazrat

Best regards Gerard


I'm afraid the coin is a dirhem not a dinar though.



yes is one dirham
best regards Gerard


I shiver to go where Manzikert dared no go. I think I see "zarb" in the central segment of the star, so I expect to see the mint name underneath. The characters there are not like anything in KM (as usual), but at least I can say that the mint name is short, like Meknes. It looks like Fes is too short and Fes Hazrat too long. It's easier for me to recognise Chinese characters on coins than Arabic characters. Odd.

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