Weight 1.6 grams, diameter 12 mm

I've been told the weight matches a half pagoda, but have not been able to get an ID for this coin. Is anyone able to help identify?

I would suggest a PM to gsrtc, who contributed many great threads on gold pagodas, though his are predominantly Hindu style.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Suggest try Dehli Sultanate. I think the center of the left image reads 'Allah' and above that looks like al of 'Dar-al-mulk' epithet. I may be wrong.

Thanks, although unfortunately he was unable to identify it.

The center of the left image shows the word 'Allah' and above it is some part of the epithet 'Dar al Mulk' which is seen on the coins of Malwa or Dehli Sultans. On the right image, though I am not too sure, there is some letters that resemble 'Akbar'.

Unfortunately, that is how far I can go.....
