Shailender Bhandare has commented this coinoriginally deciphered as of KATAK mint is of "BANG" ( Bangladesh ) mint and the date is erroneously printed as 978 whereas it should be 987

Post by: sekharkausik on April 23, 2013, 08:32:03 AM
In the next series of coins issued by Akbar, the Kalima on the obverse was dropped and the words “Allahu Akbar Jalla Jalalahu “was substituted. The meaning God is Great, Bright is his Glory is attributed by scholar’s to the punning reference to the Emperor’s name. Akbar’s names and titles were deleted from the reverse and replaced with the ilahi year and Persian month.

The transition was not so straight. In between there was a short lived series which had the Allah O Akbar on one side and Jalla Jalalahu on the other side.... It seems to have been a very short lived series and these coins which are mint-less and date-less are not easy to find. I have posted both the rupee and the half on WoC some time back......

I do not think that these issues (the top coin on this post)  (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,20614.msg139573.html#msg139573)are listed in the South Asian Coins Catalogue......

PS: I could not find my post for the Rupee as well as the Half but will find and link it later.

For the transition of the Ilahi type rupees see the page on ZENO (http://www.zeno.ru/showgallery.php?cat=3511) which shows that the transition of type went step by step. Not all mints adopted the Ilahi-type and continued the Kalima-type coinage. In respect of the coinage of Akbar, you can never generalize. There are always exceptions to the rule.

Dear Moderator,

I had posted the round Kalima coins of Akbar, in different posts earlier. Can I post them once again in this series to be in continuation of Coins of Akbar.

Sekhar Kaushik ji,
Sure. A continuous story would be informative. However, please be certain to change the topic name to reflect the exact information that you intend to convey. It would be helpful for later references.
