Morocco 1, 2, 5, and 10 Mazunas  1902 to 1905
Morocco 1, 2, 5, and 10 Mazunas 1902 to 1905

The date 1320 is a Hejira (AH) date based on the life of Mohammed, with the calendar starting during his lifetime (in 622 AD) and using a lunar year of 354 days instead of a solar year of 365 days. The 'regular' (Gregorian) date for 1320 AH is 1902 AD.

Morocco has been minting coins with AH dates in the 1300s for many years. The series described on this page has the unique 'interlocked squares' border. Here is a run-down of approximate catalog values. These values must be converted to actual buy and sell values using the concepts presented on our Terminology page. The denomination (1, 2, 5, 10) appears on the side without the date.

Before leaving this page, get your coin and double-check for a piece of Arabic writing that looks something like this. It is the mint mark for Fes (also spelled Fas, Fez) and generally increases the value of the coin by a factor of three or more. If you have a Fes coin, seek out a coin catalog (e.g., at the library) or a knowledgable collector or dealer.
