Help with Identifying this coin

Recommended Posts

Egypt, copper-nickel 2/10 qirsh, AH 1293 with regnal year 10 is equivalent to AD 1886, KM290, 3.201 million minted, worth about $1-$2. You might also try a library for a copy of the Standard Catalog of World Coins for pictures, values and lots more interesting info.

Where's the fun if you buy a book that has all the answers? I had a similar problem when I first came across this in my collection:


I pulled out a book on Arabic script and translated the date, then hit the internet searching for sites with coins from the Middle East. Once I pinged "Egypt" I knew I was in the right area.

BTW, I'm just kidding about getting the book. It's a great resource...I'm just too cheap.
