Nice coin Saro, it is strange way of writing " Zarb Khoy Sanah 1234 ضرب خوی سنه ۱۲۳۴ ". The word " Sanah سنه " meaning "year" is not usually written on Qajar coins.

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

Thank you Maythem for this relevant remark : the word "sanah" is not often used on persian coins; I have found it mainly on coins struck after 1232 and only for few mints.
