Alawi (Fileyli) Sharifs, Sidi Muhammad IV 4 falus. Marakesh mint date = 1286AH (1869)

These coins were cast rather than struck even at this late date. They are very common - through some of the earlier rulers are scarcer.

Interesting that they used a star of david for a coin from a city that is 99% percent Muslim.

Only a guess but perhaps it was a good will gesture towards a smaller segment of the population similar in concept to the % that Palestinians occupy together with the primarily Israeli territory of today?

This symbol is known to Muslims as the "Seal of Soloman", one of many traditions shared between Islam and Judaism.
