Dear Steve

I quite agree with you. It is definitely not Arabic, it looks like Urdu as they use the Arabic Alphabet. Sorry I can not be of any more help, regarding the origin of the coin.

Kind regards
Nabil Bouitieh

Iranian...I think Nov 8, 2011

Hello Steve,
The word "Farahabad" appears in the last line. According to Wikipedia, Farahabad was a palace and a city, named after it, in Iran.
You can check the Wiki for more information about it:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farahabad

Regards,

C'est de l'Urdu (ou Ourdu) Nov 8, 2011

Vu du peu que je connaisse de la langue iranienne , il s'agit de la langue urdu.
Ce lient pourrait servir pour décrypter !!!
