Iran 250 Rials 1993 to Date
What a pretty coin. I'd like to add a dazzling uncirculated specimen to my collection. It is a 250 rial coin from Iran, and it is worth face value. The date and denomination uses Easter Arabic numerals.
The date shows on the non-flower side in Solar Hejira years. Add 622 to get AD (Gregorian) dates.
Even though modern coins are all worth face value (unless they are made of gold or silver), collectors will still pay small premiums to add them to their collections. This one might go for $5 US dollars retail. But for that, it must be a dazzler!

Requester description: This appears to be a bi-metal coin. It is silver colored in the middle with a gold colored trim. There is little writing on it, but the writing looks like caligraphy. There is a single flower on the other side. It looks like a lotus, but I am not sure. There is a wreath on both sides in the gold trim.
