    My friend gave me this today to get it checked out by my coin dealer. It's definitely gold.
    He bought it 13 years ago.
    My research shows it's a Iran Pahlavi which appear to be very scarce.

    Took a few pics:

    Can anyone directly identify it?
    I've found plenty but not this one.

    It's a 1/4 Pahlavi, dated MS2536(1977). KM#1198. No mintage listed, valued @ $85 in UNC, but worth a bit more for the gold content .0589 AGW.

    Yeah I found that after much searching.
    Thank you for the rest of the information though.
    He also gave me a 1885 Liberty $5 piece which was in very good condition.
    Might be worth a pretty penny.
