Hello everyone,
I received some medieval Indian coins a while back. I've got no clue as to where they're from. I would really appreciate any help you all can provide. I have uploaded 1 coin per post and numbered them all as well with measurements.
Thank you and have a good one :))

Here's coin#1

Diameter: 18 mm
Weight: 6.6 g
Thickness: 3 mm

Just a quick guess based on style and "Ahmad" in top line of first photo:
Ahmad Shah of the Bahmani sultans.

Dear mkm1968, you mean Half Gani not 1.2 Gani?

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