I think it is a coin of Muhammad bin Humayun of Bahmani. Your top image needs to be rotated 180 degrees and the lower one 90 degrees CW.

Dear pruthvi91
I am trying to overlay and annotate your coin. The "Shams" part is worn out but the "al dunya" portion confirms the preceding part. Ahmad shah bin Humayun also has issued coins that look similar. But on them "Nasir" will be there above "Mustanzir".

Neat and very convincing. Great addition to the index as well. Thank you.
