    1 Dirham = 2.975g of Silver, a unit of measure for Islamic Currency
    The weight is derived from the ruling that 10 Dirham must be equivalent in weight to 7 Gold Dinar, with a Dinar being 4.25g of Gold.

    My bid: $150

    They appear to have arabic calligraphy but I can't read that script unfortunately

    $160 - They will go nicely with my SRDC 1 Dinar and a couple of 0.5 Dinar gold coins

    I stand to be corrected, but I think the script at the top is the Majma-ul-Bahrain which is the beginning of 17th-century Persian philosophy thesis about religion (specifically how Islam and Hinduism have some connection) and where Baharain the country gets its name from?? The lower laser engraving is the number 8 in Arabic (looks like an inverted V) and the word dirham.
    Like I say - I think that's the case but my 17th-century Arabic is a bit rusty o_O

    Majma ul Bahrain means the meeting of the two seas (being Islam and Hinduism)
    Bahrain the country named so because of the island state "belonging" to the surrounding seas.

    A closer look at some images onlines reveal the script is an extract of the call to prayer (Adhan) and reads:
    Hayya Al Salat - Come to the prayer (meaning one of the five daily prayers)
    Hayya Al falat - come to success (meaning your worship will be more fruitful than your trade)

    Rest of your post is spot on
