Hello,

does anyone has information about this coin?

It looks similar to coins from Libya during the time of Gaddafi.
I tried to find information about the building on the coin, but without any success.

The coin has a diameter of 1.02'' and a weight of 0.2 oz.

This is a 1979 Egyptian coin commemorating the 25th anniversary of the mint: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces10276.html

@h45t, first welcome to CCF. Second, that looks like an Egyptian 10 Piastres to me. Here is a link to the numista page that I think that @john1 was trying to send you to: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces10276.html

added: ah @numisma, you just beat me to the response. Well done!

Welcome to the CCF!
For future reference, when discussing coins we use the metric system, so diameter to the nearest millimeter and weight to the nearest tenth of a gram are most helpful for ID requests.
