The two beaded circles on the obverse and the three on the reverse point immediately at Khusro II or later, the poor style points at Khusro II pre year 21.

The mint is YZ for Yazd, see http://grifterrec.rasmir.com/sasania/sas_mint/sas_mint_table2.html

The date is more difficult but I think it is most likely year 5, see http://grifterrec.rasmir.com/sasania/sas_mint/dp/sas_date_table.html

It never ceases to amaze how you can find your way in this highly complicated and very long series, in addition to so many other coins.
