Sharing my second coin, from Balkh. It's the Janid type, issued to be used in the Janid territories.

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

Thanks! I do believe that Shah Jahan and his sons were in control of Balkh, which was under the control of Janids. 

Very interesting history of central Asia.
