  • Hi Balamir --

    It looks like a fals (its denomination) from the Umayyad Caliphate, about 700 AD. The inscription is the Shahada, I believe. The one in my picture sold for $280 US dollars in a recent auction. Your coin (which is probably genuine) is in worse condition and is probably worth $100 or so.
