    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Without seeing the other side, it could be a token.
    How did you get it; under what circumstances?

    If the other side is identical, I'd call it a token.
    Other than that, I haven't a clue.

    The writing looks middle eastern. Not trying to be racial but maybe if you have any stores with middle eastern ownership maybe they could help I.D. it for you.

    That is indeed almost certainly Arabic script on the object. It would be wonderful if an Arabic-speaker could be found to translate the script. That might provide the answer to the object's identity. What's in the crest? Crossed swords? Flags?

    Best regards,

    Bill. I think it might be a Saudi coin. The swords are at the bottom. Are you sure the other side is exactly the same? Arabic date is 1370. Is the diameter 30.5mm. I will try and post a pic of one.

    Its a Silver Saudi Arabian Coin 1 Riyal .

    In 1925, transitional copper coins for and qirsh (in some parts of the country, it is pronounced girsh) were minted in Makkah by Ibn Saud. They were followed, in 1926, by , and 1 qirsh cupro-nickel pieces carrying the title "King of Hejaz and Sultan of Nejd".
    In 1927, the royal title was changed to "King of Hejaz and Nejd and Dependencies" and coins were issued in denominations of , and 1 qirsh in cupro-nickel and , and 1 riyal in silver.
    In 1935, the first coins were issued in the name of Saudi Arabia. These were silver , and 1 riyal coins which were nearly 50% lighter than the previous issue. Cupro-nickel , and 1 qirsh were also issued from 1937. In 1946 (AH 1365), many of the cupro-nickel coins were countermarked with the Arabic numerals 65 in what Krause and Mishler describe as "a move to break money changers' monopoly on small coins". Cupro-nickel 2 and 4 qirsh were introduced in 1957.
    In 1963, the halala was introduced, and bronze 1 halala coins were issued. That was the only year they were struck. Cupro-nickel 5, 10, 25 and 50 halala followed in 1972, inscribed with their denomination in ghirsh or riyal (1, 2 qirsh, , riyal). In 1976, cupro-nickel 1 riyal coins were introduced, which are also inscribed with the denomination 100 halala. Bimetallic 1 riyal coins, also marked 100 halala, were issued in 1999.
    A new series of 1, 5, 10, 25, and 50 halalas and bimetallic 1 and 2 riyal coins was issued in 2016

    That’s a cool coin, must have been fun to find. Also, there is a free App that you can download called Coinoscope. It is great for identifying coins. Just take a pic and in seconds it will identify it or give you pics of possible matches
