Please can you help identify this coin from Afghanistan?

The scale in the photo is marked in mm.

The coin seems thin: of the order of 1mm.

I am curious about the metal. It has not been cleaned in over 50 years at least. It has a yellow hue but the colour is paler than I would have expected from pure gold. Of course it could be brass but it does not seem to be copper or bronze.

This is the sixth coin from what remains of my fathers collection. Five other coins were included in this discussion.]

I remain grateful for the identification and advice that was given in that discussion.

Not much to go on here but probably a dirhem of Artuqids of Mardin (possibly Nasir al-Din Artuq Arslan, 597-637)
