Questions: Identification? Value?

I cannot seem to find this coin anywhere...I thought it was from Iran, but now I am not sure. Any help with identification would be appreciated.

Coin is 31 mm diameter.

What a beautiful coin!

Thanks so much, Rojîyar, for identifying the coin and translating the inscriptions. We appreciate your contributions here.

As to value, my guess is that Aki's coin would sell for $10 to $20 US dollars to a collector, half of that to a coin dealer.

The amazing set in our picture comes from Heritage Auctions ( where it sold for $950 US dollars during a 2006 auction. CoinQuest, as always, is grateful to Heritage for allowing us to use their coin photos. The $950 figure is very high because (1) it is for 6 coins in the set, and (2) the coins are uncirculated proof issues produced solely for collectors.

A better estimate of value for Aki's coin is found on eBay. There are many, many collectors on eBay, and coins always reach fair market value. The web links (to the left) show three coins that sold for $10, $3, and $24. The condition of Aki's coin is closer to the high end than the low end of these three.
