Not Sikh but Durrani.
It's a rupee of Taïmur Shah from Derajat mint with the full mintname on1st picture : "zarb Derajat sanah 5"
2nd picture gives a couplet with Taimur's name (at top).
The full couplet is :" the revolution (of the Heavens) brings gold and silver from the sun and moon, in order that it may make on the face (of the coin) the design of the stamp of Taimur Shah" (partially present on your coin)
"All I know is that I know nothing" (Socrates)
