Can you provide some more details, please? The name is new to me. A date (range) would be nice. Is the couplet special?

Peter the couplet only appears only in Multan and Bhakkar mints.
Sikka zad dar jahan Za fazle elah Badshah Jahan Muhammad shah.  I may be wrong about the date but 2 or 3 consecutive dates are known.

Husain, can you please construct the different words in different colours so that we can learn to read the legend........... Sikka is not there and what is at the top? something like Akbar........

The "jahan" in the bottom and middle lines are spelt differently.  (H/hay is omitted from middle line version.)  Is there a particular reason why that is so?  My Urdu is, at best, at a third grade/standard level.

I couldn't find a full flan specimen to reconstruct the legends but yes it cannot be  Jahan without 'he' so its my mistake in drawing.  I forgot the Nukta too. Thanks CMERC
Amit bhai I will draw a new one.
