This 3 or 4 year type, before the portrait coin design, is first seen with the date AH 1320, but this is considered a possible pattern and is very scarce. This piece is particulary interesting and significant because is was struck by the U.S. Mint post the 1933 gold ban; this 1943 date ONLY [AH1322]. Listed as Bullion Value in KM VF & below you will find it hard not to pay a high premium on this coin with a U.S. mintage report of 16,053. This coin will be mentioned in my article on the Saudi/ARAMCO gold discs. Similar coins were struck in the 1/2 Pahlavi denomination [mintage: 89,108]
The Philadelphia mint coined gold pahlevis (16,053) and half-pahlevis (89,108) for Iran in 1943, as shown by The Report of the Director of the Mint for 1943. This report referred to this coin in a footnote and
stated: "These coins are objects of value, rather than a circulating medium."
