This is not an Armenian coin, but an Islamic coin with both sides upside down.

Hi

It is an akche from one of the Anatolian beyliks, probably the Sarukhan Oghullari or Qarasi Oghullari, but I'm not sure which.

I think it looks rather like a fourre contemporary forgery (I think I see copper showing through where there is wear on the high points).

I will try and track it down tomorrow.

Best wishes

Alan

So this is the right side. For the first time i see such an islamic coin.
Is there a ruler that can be determined?
Thanx for your attention!
