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

Brilliant attribution Maythem ! I had been reading the Badakshan part as "bin Hasan"which did not make sense.
The wordt before "Shah" seems to be mu'azzam معظم instead of "mir" ?

Thank you Anthony, it was puzzling me, you are right it is now clear to me " سلطان معظّم شاه بهاالدين  Sultan Mu'zzam Shah Baha al-Din ". Now, what I thought is a scribble below the " carpet beater symbol " is in fact the word " Baha al-Din بهاالدين " joined together.
That completes the text on the obverse.
