Denomination : Silver Drachm.  Mint : AY mint 

Date : Year 3  (AD 593).

Size : 29.8 x 31.5 mm.  Weight : 3.99 grams.
 
Grade : Fine

Obverse : Head of Khusru II right with a Sassanid inscription naming him around.

Reverse : Fire altar flanked by two attendants with the mint mark to the right and the date mark to the left in Sassanid script.

During the first few years of Khusru II's reign, the style of all of his coins was slightly crude, and they tend to be poorly struck.  Sometime around year 12 (slightly different dates at different mints) the coins were re-designed with a dramatically superior style and they tend to strike much better.
