Here I present a silver coin from Iran, Qajar dynasty, Nasir al-din (1264-1314), Kran or a fractional of it.
Is anyone able to find out more than the above mentioned features, such as value (unit), mint and year?
Thanks for any more clarification.
17,6 mm ### 4,95 g


Dear Treverer, your coin:
Iran, Qajar, Nasir al-Din Shah, Silver Qiran, Date?, mint of Baldat Tayebah Hamadan (1264-1314 AH)(1848-1896 AD)
Obverse: "السلطان ابن السلطان ناصرالدین شاه قاجار ", al-Sultan Ibn al-Sultan Nasir al-Din Shah Qajar.
Reverse: Mint and date inside a decorated circle, written ضرب بلده طيبه همدان (mint of Baldat Tayebah Hamadan); بَلْدَةٌ طَيِّبَةٌ (Good Land).
Date is not visible. The date should be on the left side of the circle at 8 O'clock; for this type of coin the date should be between 127x and 128x AH.

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


This is far more than I could have expected. Thank you Maythem!
