    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is more related to Numismatic than personal finance. – Dheer Jan 11 '18 at 10:38

    @Dheer In my opinion, questions about currency and legal tender are intrinsically linked to personal finance, and should be on-topic. – Ben Miller - Remember Monica Jan 11 '18 at 13:56
  • @BenMiller coin identification is a vast topic. I am into numismatics and it is a very broad topic on its own. The format is more of discussion board and not Q&A. While you have given the exchange value, it's numismatics value can be way different. Price of stock is off topic as it changes fast, hence exchange rate is also off topic. May be a meta discussion. – Dheer Jan 11 '18 at 17:33

    The reverse says "Kingdom of Bahrain". How can you not know what it is? – RonJohn Jan 11 '18 at 19:46

    @Dheer - that is simply not a numismatic coin. The question has no relation at all to numismatics. It's just a common Bahraini coin, currency. It's "Bahrani dime". – Fattie Aug 7 '20 at 21:53

This is a Bahraini coin. It is worth 50 fils, and there are 1000 fils in each Bahraini dinar, so this coin is worth 0.050 BHD. The current value of this coin is 8.99 INR, or $0.13 USD.

  • Is this information correct? Someone said me that it is a Bahrain Dinar.Can you confirm it is only worth 8 INR? – Abhijith A S Jun 24 '16 at 16:08

    @AbhijithAS Take a look at the Wikipedia article I linked to and read for yourself. Based on the article, I believe my answer is correct, but I don't have any first hand knowledge about Bahraini currency. – Ben Miller - Remember Monica Jun 24 '16 at 16:10
