Hi,

I need some help to identify this coin I found in a lot that I picked up recently.

Its 21mm diameter and abt 3mm thick weighing abt 11.5gr.

Many thanks for any experts help!

My first impression was that it was a rupee of the Mughal Empire. A Kalima type coinage.

Possibly Jalal al-din Muhammad Akbar

I agree with Bacchus regarding the Mughal empire, but it seems to be Shah Jahan (the builder of Taj Mahal).
