It's too bad that none of our Mongolian experts have offered a
translation or transliteration of the Mongolian script on that coin.
If the coin is simply bilingual, then the Mongolian inscription would
be the same as the Arabic. But, I tried an input of "Allah" and
"Mohammad" in the Mongolian script using the BabelPad editor,
and I can't really see anything similar in the Mongolian text on
the coin. Of course, that's hardly conclusive...
