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

Whats are the additional titles in the line after naseer al-dawlah?
The last word looks like 'ummah' (a synonym of millah with a more religious connotation), and the beginning looks like "qutub" (pole) but the connecting text remains a mystery.

Got it finally, so the Naseer and Zaheer are switched as compared to his usual titles: Zaheer al Dawlah wa Naseer al-Millah

I think you are right, and that is also what Goron and Goenka transcribed.
Michael Bates gives as Ibrahim's laqab: al-Sultan[al-Mu`azzam] al-A`zam al-Malik al-Mansur Zahir al-Dawla `Adud al-Din Nasir al-Milla Qahir al-Muluk Sayyid al-Salatin Malik al-Islam. And notes that there are some variations/mixing over time.
