The General Condition of the Tughluqi State as Told by its Coinage

Auther : Hessa Aljabr

This is a study of history through coins. A hoard of 28 coins of gold, silver, copper, and billon, are preserved in the National Museum of India. The researcher studied all these coins thoroughly and in detail from historical, geographical and economic aspects, in the light of what is inscribed on them, both on the verse and the obverse. The study also analyses the scripts, the titles and their meanings. Moreover, it studies the dates and the places where they were struck, the metal, the category, the weight, and the diameter. The study also points out the archival information of these coins in the Museum. These coins belonged to five Tughluqi Sultans from: 720 A.H.-795A.H./1320A.D-1392A.D. They were: Ghiyathuddin Tughluq, Mohammad b. Tughluq, Fayrooz Shah B. Tughluq, Fathi Khan, Mohammad shah 3rd b. Fayrooz. These coins were struck in three cities: Dehli (Delhi), outb Abad Dawalat, and Abad (Takhtkah). Some of these coins do not bear the place and year they were struck. The categories of these coins are: Tanka, Kana and their units of four, six and ten, in addition to the Jital category. The weights of these coins range from 11 grams of gold to 3.7 grams of Billon which is the least in value and category. The study corrected some of the readings of the coins' legends that were previously mentioned by the British Museum.
