The coin depicted with the Wikipedia article is not of Radiyya Begum, but of the Ghaznavid ruler Yamin al-Daulah Bahram Shah Shah (AH512-547/AD1118-1152). The inscription reads Yamini. Ref.: Tye #111; G/G GZ50.

Thanks Oesho. After some trial and error, I was able to replace the image on wikipedia with a Jital of Razia.
Pity, I just can't get rid of that irritating white area at the top of the reverse image (in thumbnail view only).

It's gone now! Must be a problem with my browser's cache.
