These Mithqals have been minted in the years 1188h, 1189h and 1191h in Rabat al-Fath and only for the one year 1190h in Marrakesh. A lot of contemporary and modern forgeries exist. For the discussed coin only 2 variants and 1 forgery is know to me. If you have images from these coins I would be happy if you could send them to me, in order to find more variants and forgeries.
