Mint seems Ujjain. The ruler's identity is on the other side. Most often, it is very difficult to precisely say if it is Jahangir or Shahjahan who issued it because "Jahan" is prominently seen with no "sha" or "ngir" on most of the coins.

You can scroll the picture to the right and see the other side.

This one I will say is of Jahangir. The legend is crude, but almost fully clearly visible.

"Ngir" is off the flan on this one. The part at the bottom is "Sikka". Check out this thread for more examples.

Over my coin the bottom line reads Shah, So its Shah Jahan?
7 is written in Jaha(n), what that means?
