Dear maudry, I am only trying to help, your coin could be:
Afghanistan, Taimur Shah ibn Ahmad Shah, AR Rupi, Derajat (Dera Ismail Khan) mint (AH 1186-1207)(1773-1793 AD)
Obverse couplet:  چرخ مي آرد طلا و نقره از خورشید ماه تازید بر چهره نقش سکه تیمور شاه  , " Charkh me Ard wa naqra az khorshid mah tazid bar chihra naqash seka Timur Shah, meaning", The heaven brings in gold and silver from the sun and moon, so that it may receive the impression of the stamp of Taimur Shah.
The word Taimur تيمور is visible at top line.
Reverse: ۱۸ ضرب ديرجات سنه  , Zarb Derajat Sanah 18 (1202-1204 AH).

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

This coin is catalogued by Whitehead under n 535.
It is to notice that the reverse legend is fully present, it is not the case of the obverse couplet of which only a small part is on the flan.
