I love these early machine struck coins. Generally struck from tired dies.
This one is not too bad.

Dear maudry, your coin details:

Reverse (First photo): the Farsi legend:  السلطان ناصرالدین شاه قاجار   , "al-Sultan Nasir al-Din Shah Qajar " in the center circle within wreath and the mint " Tehran طهران  " is at the bottom.
Obverse (Second photo): Crown above lion and sun within wreath, the date "1297 ۱۲۹۷ " is at the bottom. The denomination value is " Two Thousand Dinars دو هزار دینار  " below the lion. 

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