Dear Maythem, the family name was an option I had looking for...
the good transcription (given by S. Hanstein) is :
" سکه دولت بنام ال پیغمبر زدیم " / (sikkah-yi daulat be-nam-i-al-i payghambar zadim)
"All I know is that I know nothing" (Socrates)

Dear Saro, yes you are right. It is the way I read the transcription which I thought it was simple.
Thank you.

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

I am in awe of this research, saro. Bridging the enormous distance between a remarkable die and a sloppy strike on an unsuitable flan is no small feat. Are you planning to publish this further? It is well worth it.

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

Yes Peter, an article has just been published in the ONS journal n°236 (summer 2019)  :)
