Mint: Egypt, actually these were struck in Birmingham England as evidenced by the "H" in the bottom of the obverse.

Size and Weight: This is a 20 Qirsh and is ~40 mm in diameter and weighs ~28 grams.

References: It is KM #310.

Condition: I would grade this coin as a good lustrous extremely fine or better with all the details being well preserved. The coin retains most of its original mint luster and has wear commensurate with its age and circulated state. It has scratches and minor dings to the rim. In addition, it has losses of details in the high points of floral designs both on the obverse and reverse.  The coin has great eye appeal. It is much better than the scan shows. Please see photo for condition information.
