Comments

Mint: British Royal Mint

Rulers:
1) Sheikh Abdullah III (1950-1965)
2) Sheikh Sabah III (1965-1977)
3) Sheikh Jaber III (1977-2006)
4) Sheikh Sabah IV (2006-Date)

Possibly an error (or a simply damaged 1995 coin) with dates "١٤١٥  - ١٩٦٥" which is 1965-1415, while the normal coin should read 1995-1415 instead
