Hi

I need more information to identify this coin, I think it may be from muslim Spain perhaps the Caliphate of Cordoba or  Almoravid Dynasty.

Measures 25 mm and weighs 3.90 grs.

Thanks in advance

The characters that you encircled seems almost identical, the only difference I see is the sign to the left.

 I have no idea of arabic writing I do not know if my observation helps you

Thanks again   laugh

Alright , I think yours date is   AH 518.

the circled word in Arabic , I read it 8   ثمان
As you know no dots here - on coins for some letters -

Ali bin Yusuf bin Tashfin   ruled from (AH 476 هـ/ AD1083 م AH 537 هـ/ AD1143 م)

You are very welcome , to my eyes looks an 8 .

To tell you the truth I had a doubt to be a 5 , but the 5 written in Arabic has a sin (S ) in the end which has 3 vertical lines like the one in circle 1.
The word in circle 2  has only 2 vertical lines in the end , plus they are not identical.
So as we said   AH 518.
