Not my area at all but I had something very similar (but in less good condition) and it was identified eventually as "Ilkhan" I believe. See if that helps in your searches.

Certainly not Ilkhans but could be either Muzaffarid Shah Shuja, or Timurid Shahrukh.

Great lead! Looking in Mitchiner, I couldn't find a ten-lobe within a circle among the Timurid coins (MWI 1897-1944), but there are plenty among the coins of Shah Shuja (MWI 1760-1770). We are close to an id now...

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

Dear gencho kitov, I can read part of the text on second photo, this might help:
Ottoman Empire, Murad, AR Akce, mint ?
First photo: لا اله الا الله محمد رسول الله , La Illah illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, meaning, There is no deity except God, Muhammad is the messenger of God.
Second photo: سلطان مراد خلد الله ملكه , Sultan Murad Kahhad Allah Mulkahu, meaning, Sultan Murad may God perpetuate his sovereignty.
This silver Akce could belong to Ottoman Sultan Murad i, ii or iii.

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

Dear Mr..aws22
Thank you! Everything you said is correct. It's clearly written Murad, but Murad 2 and 3 have different stamps
Zeno - Oriental Coins Database - Murad II, 1st reign 824-848/1421-1444
Zeno - Oriental Coins Database - Murad III 982-1003/1574-1595
 My first though also was Murad, but it isn't.
 Murad has three periods of  coins, with one, two or thee dashes and text Murad son of Orhan.
Zeno - Oriental Coins Database - Murad I 763-791/March 1362-15 June 1389

BR,

Thank you Gencho, the word Murad is there which I thought it might help.
