hi iam currently living in morocco these coins we find here in the countryside they bear the sign of Solomon, the star of david, the symbol was carev into a ring,given to king soloman and gave him the pover of devisl and jinns and also the capacity to speak with animals.
I think the Gregorian dates the rule of Solomon from some time in the mid 1850 til 1822, that is in the Arabic calenden around the year 1200 so the coins is about 200 years old... they sell on ebay ranging from 5 dollas til 300 depending on which coin and its condition. the coins are made out of cobber or silver....... and the sizes range from 16 to 28 mm
