Because of the lack of beard it should have been struck in the beginning of his reign, exact data should be on the coin but the quality/resolution of the scan is not good enough to read it

Because of the style of the reverse, your coin was minted between years 2 and 10 of Xusro (Khusru) II rule.  Can you provide a better image of the reverse?  Your coin does have a readable date and mint mark on it.

Your coin appears to be Bishapur, year 8.
