Weight, diameter, and general appearance similar to some coins of the Ilkhans, but I wasn't able to find a match in Zeno. Hopefully one of our members will be able to read the coin.

Dear maudry, details of your coin:
Mamluks, al-Muzaffar Rukn al-Din Baybars II, 708/709 AH, AR Dirham, Tripoli mint? (AH 708-709/1309-1310 AD)
First photo: Circular line in circle of dots:
لا اله الا الله   La Ilah Illa Allah
محمد رسول الله   Muhammad Rasul Allah
ارسله بالهدى Arsalahu bi-al-Huda, "sent his messenger with the guidance".
ودين الحق   wa Din al-Haq, “and the true religion”.
This is first part of a verse from the Quran:
محمد رسول الله ارسله بالهدى و دين الحق ليظهره على الدين كله ولو كره المشركون ,  Muhammad is the messenger of God. He sent him with guidance and the true religion to reveal it to all religions even if the polytheists abhor it.
Second photo:
السلطان الملك   al-Sultan al-Malik
المظفر ركن الدنيا والدين  al-Muzaffar Rukn al-Dunya wa al-Din
ببرس المنصوري   Baybars al-Mansuri
No circular legend, mint and date are not visible. Mint is expected to be “ Tripoli طرابلس “.

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".
