I was given some ISIS coins. The ones on your website do not correlate with ones I have. I am currently embedded with the YPG forces in Dier ez-Zor in Syria. I was given these coins by a Haval
(comrade) that he found on the front line. But there seem to be a lot of different ones.
This is the first I've seen these coins, and have no information on them. I've cropped the photos, but I'm not entirely sure they're properly oriented. What do
the inscriptions say? Are they actually ISIS coins, or something else? Below are images from one of our earlier articles. -Editor
