Dear petar.mne, may be your coin is:
Ottoman, Sultan Suleiman I Khan, Date?, AE Akce, Misr (Egypt) mint? (AH 926-974/1520-1566 AD)

Suleiman I (سليمان اول), commonly known as Suleiman the Magnificent in the West and Suleiman the Lawgiver (  سلطان سليمان قانوني) in his realm, was the longest-reigning sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1520 until his death in 1566.

Thank you, really didn't expect this one to be identifiable

Maythem did say "maybe", but what little is visible on the coin confirms his tentative id. It reminds me of "se non è vero, è molto ben trovato" (if it is not true, it is very well found) and, one should add in this case, it is so much more satisfactory to have a solution that agrees with the facts than to have another non-identified coin. ;)

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

Thank you Peter, "maybe" was for Misr mint, I was not sure about the mint because it is not visible.
