Quote from: Overlord on October 19, 2008, 09:55:27 AMAll coins issued during the first four years of Tippu Sultan's reign bear the Hijri date (in which numerals are read from left to right). In the fifth year, he introduced the Mauludi era (which takes its origin from the birth of the Prophet Muhammad). In the Mauludi system, years are read from right to left. Coins of the fourth year are dated 1200 AH, while those of the fifth year bear 1215 AM. The Hijri years are lunar years of 12 lunar months each. For the new calendar, Tippu adopted the Hindu calendar and replaced the names of the sixty cyclic years and months with Arabic ones.
