This is a Mughal Dam of Akbar. Date AH 96X (x = 0 or 5). If I stick my neck out, Mint Narnol but I could be wrong there.

Thanks Amit,

Do I have it correctly orientated?
It's one thick coin this one!

The last digit of the date is in my opinion a 6. On the reverse the date is also written out and from what is visible on the top, it could only be 'six'. Therefore the date should be AH966.
