    Help with what I think is Middle eastern coin

    I got a coin. I am not going to say how I got it or from where.I am just trying to figure out where it is from and so I can get a value for it. The best I can figure out after months of searching online is the year 1382. Also i have seen some things that point to Yemen as it's source.It is very old and not struck center at all.

    It is indeed a coin from Yemen. It is a 1/80 Riyal from the Yemen Arab Republic and should be bronze. It was the first year of the republic.

    The year is A.H. 1382, which is 1962 A.D.

    It's worth around $20 or so. Since it lost a lot of color, probably less.
