Somewhat round thick coin with what seems like Arabic writing on both sides. 19-20mm diameter, 4mm thick flan. Weight 12.17g. Coin came out of large box of mixed metal detector finds bought at auction. Finds were understood to have been made in Gloucestershire area. Thank you in advance for any help you're able to offer.

Very many thanks - and thank you for getting back so quickly, it is much appreciated.

Would you know what the coin is called, so I can research it further?
