@sofia, first welcome to CCF. Second, that looks like a 1 Riyal from Saudi Arabia. Here is a link to numista, which should be pretty close to a match:

Also, here is a close-up of the date (above) and denomination (below) for your coin. it might be fun to try reading the numerals to calculate the date.

1 riyal, Saudi Arabia, AH1374 (1955 A.D.)
Worth about $10-$15 in the grade it is in (which appears to be XF/AU)
Struck in .917 (11/12) fineness silver
Mintage: 48 million
Currently interested in buying 1957 and earlier Russian and Soviet coins. Let me know if you have any and we can hook up a deal!
