Middle eastern/southern Asia coin ID - Solved - Iranian Rial

by Hobie-wan Sat Sep 01, 2012 4:49 pm

Totally random, found this coin at the grocery store. I was wondering if anyone knew what country it was from. reverse image searches and whatnot haven't gotten me anywhere.

Looks Arabic. But I guess you knew that much.

Almost exactly like that top left one. I'll search a bit more later.

yeah, that non-building side matches several examples I see of iranian currency, but I didn't find an exact match in some quick looking. I also looked at 10 or so other Arab speaking countries (again, with a quick search). Maybe PM kingmohd?

Presuming the number on the coin is the year of issuance, it was between 21st March 2010 – 20th March 2011. Nothing exotic or valuable I'm afraid :lol:
