Not really tricky, quite a recognizeable design.
It is a Iranian civic issue from Yerevan (Monkey Falus) i believe.

Hope Saro can be proud of me  ;D

Yes Anthony ! :) It's well a persian civic copper from Erivan mint.
 a monkey facing right / legend : "zarb falus  Erivan + date"
The date is rubbed out but should be 1127 or 1128 AH; the mintname is well legible at top.
