      Collectables59, Excellent. Looks like the 1946 (Islamic calendar 1365) 2 baisa/baiza.

      This wikia provides some background information on the coin (but not a very good quality coin in the photographs):

      This coin is a bit better looking:

      This restrike looks good:

      Oof, dunno why that first link seems to want to redirect to the page for the more modern, round 1970 coin. Trying again:

      All right, I give up. You'll have to click on the link for the 1946 coin after it does the redirect to the page for the 1970. >8-0

      I eventually found it on Google images then went from there. Thanks for trying. Neil

      Thank you TheGateKeeper, AnnaB, and worthit2 for the love. Incidentally I put the coin on Ebay well after posting and it reached £10.50, still not sure if I got a result or not ! Neil
