Oman 10 Baisa F.A.O. Commemorative 1975
This is a modern 10 baisa coin from the Sultanate of Oman. It's an F.A.O. (Food and Agriculture Organization) commemorative coin and was only struck for a single year - 1975. Remember that the Arabic character for 5 looks like an oval with a slight teardrop shape. 1975AD on the Western (Gregorian) calendar is 1395 on the Islamic calendar. That's the date your see on the coin.
Collectors aren't interested in circulated coins, but if you can find a beautiful specimen in fully uncirculated condition, you may be able to sell it for a couple dollars to a collector keen to add it to his or her collection.
There is another 10 baisa coin from Oman with the same date, but that coin has the national arms of Oman (two small versions of the arms can be seen on either coin type, on the side with the date) instead of the two palm trees. Values are the same for both types.

Requester description: 1970 All in Arabic, year is 1970 from what I can tell ( or 1390) in Arabic, no matches on internet. Sign that looks like the 1 dirham sign, kind of like a slash with period or dot after on one side. On other side it looks very much like united Arab emirate coins with the three Palm trees, but TWO palm trees instead without the largest middle one with the Arabic date right underneath where it usually says United Arab Emirates in English. Please help!
