I am virtually sure its is a Indian Copper Rupee (or Rupee fraction depending on its size) from the Indian Princely States - late 1700s up to the middle 1800s. If you look at this listing and scroll down, you will see a similar one (but obviously not the same). The writing makes it extremely difficult to exactly date it.

Thanks Pierre.I also thought it was from India but it seems their numerals are not written like the date on this coin---or am I wrong?

It is however an Arabic date.

For everyone's edification, I managed to locate this coin.

It is a 1913 4 Lariat from the Maldive Islands.
