"Sikka zad bar Seem wa Zar chun Mihr wa Mah / Shah-i deen Parwar Shuja' al-Mulk Shah", meaning, Coin struck on wire and gold like seal and moon \ Shah al-Din Parwar Shuja' al-Mulk Shah.
Padshah Sultan Shah Shuja' Durrani (شاه شجاع درانی), was ruler of the Durrani Empire from 1803 to 1809. He then ruled from 1839 until his death in 1842. Son of Timur Shah Durrani, Shuja' Shah was of the Sadduzai line of the Abdali group of Ethnic Pashtuns. He became the fifth Emir of Afghanistan.

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


As always ; thank you very much Maythem.
