Algeria 1, 2 and 5 Centimes 1964
Are you sure that's Sanskrit, TJ? From your description, this coin type from Algeria seems to be a match. It has the crescent between the two flags, and it's a tiny coin from 1964. However, the lettering on this coin is Arabic, not Sanskrit. If we misidentified your coin, just submit a new appraisal, and we'll try again!
Being quite modern coins with mintages in the tens of millions, their values are quite low. Even in fully uncirculated condition, catalog values just barely reach $2 US dollars. That goes for all denominations - 1, 2 and 5 centimes alike.
For a coin to reach the $2 value, it must be completely free of even light scratches or fingerprints. Collectors do not like impaired surfaces.
