The last digit is not clear on this coin.
I hope it is still possible to make something of this one.

Dear maudry, the date looks like " AH 1206 ۱۲۰۶ ", Qajar, Agha Muhammad Khan (Silver Shahi), Zarb " Shiraz شیراز ". I am not sure?

it looks very older ?
I would read the date "92x"  ??? and the design reminds me small ottoman silver coins struck by Selim I or Suleyman.

At this time the shirvanshah were vassals of the Ottomans (Selim I & Suleyman I) and it isn't surprising that their small silver coins were inspired by the aqches of their overlords.

Good grief, saro, you are a magician. How did you identify this one?

There is no magic...  the date and  ornament reminded me an ottoman aqche, as it doesn't fit with aqches of Selim or Suleyman I, I just went to their neighbouring vassals.. ;)
