Based on the specimens I have come across, I think the issues of Shah Jahan can also be distinguished from those of Jahangir from the word(s) below "Jaha" (as the part above it is rarely visible). On coins of Shah Jahan, it reads "(Falus?) Shah" (as seen from asm's examples), whereas on those of Jahangir, it is clearly "Sikka". Given below are a couple of examples of Jahangir, showing the legend above and below "Jaha", respectively (making the complete legend "Sikka Jahangiri").

Jaha+Gir+Ye=Jahangiri


Sikka Jahan gir...

Liddle's book describes the legend as "Sikka Mohammed Jahangir" (type C-49).  I wonder where the word "Mohammed" is there on the obverse  ???

Seems He is taking this as "Mohammed".

That seems to be an awkward position, doesn't it? That way, it would read "Sikka Jahan Muhammad Gir".

This coin adds parts of the legend. It reads almost "Muhammad" between "Jaha" and "ngir"

Here is another one where "ngir" is below "Jaha".

And on this coin, there is something written above "Muhammad". But it is of Jahangir.

Most copper coins of Shah Jahan have the legend 'falus shah jahani'
.
This coin here shows a better refined strike and "falus" at the bottom. Between falus and "Jaha". there is a letter. Can't that be "shah", to make it one of Shahjahan?
