Hafsids of Tunis.  Abu Zakariy'a Yahya I, AH 627 to 647 (AD 1230 to 1249)

Denomination : I bought this coin from Steve Albumn, who designated it as a gold 1/4 dinar.   However Mitchiner lists examples of this size and weight as 1/2 dinars.

Mint : no mint or date (the Hafsid's generally did not put dates or mints on their coins)

Reference : This denomination is not listed in Albums check list, but the 1/2 dinar of this type is listed as A-500.2.  This type has been assigned the number A-500 D when I bought it from Steve.

Size : 16.0 x 16.4 mm.  Weight : 1.16 grams.

Grade :  XF and very well struck.

Obverse
: Arabic inscriptions.

Reverse : Arabic inscriptions.

A nice example of a rare type.
