Gold Coin Found in San Juan With Minelab Explorer SE

This is the gold coin I found on the 21st of June at 4:30 am while detecting on a beach in San Juan PR with my Minelab Explorer that I purchased from Kellyco. This is my first gold find. The coin is in Arabic and had it translated to 1327. It is probably a 50 Kurdish from Turkey. My eleven year old daughter and I are very happy with the three Minelab detectors we have purchased from Kellyco and look forward to finding more interesting items. We are still new at this hobby but enjoying every minute detecting.
