Not Shiraz but "dar al-khalifat Teheran" of which "dar ..Khali.." is legible , "Teheran" is off flan at top.

Dear maudry, your coin:
Qajar, Muhammad Shah, 1255 AH, Silver Qiran (Kran), Dar Al-Khilafat Tehran mint (AH 1254-1264/1834-1848 AD)
Obverse, inside a decorated circle written in Farsi: ” شاهنشه انبیا محمد  “, Shahanshah Anbiya Muhammad (Prophet Muhammad is King of Kings).
Reverse, inside beaded circle: “ ضرب دار الخلافه طهران “ ,  Zarb Dar Al-Khilafat Tehran, the date " 1255 ۱۲۵۵  " is at the bottom below the word “ Zarb ضرب ".
Muhammad Shah was the son of Abbas Mirza, Fath ’Ali Shah’s son, and Nasir al-din Shah’s father.

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