Quote from: Oesho on March 22, 2008, 11:01:46 PMYes Overlord, this is one of the forced currency issues of Muhammad bin Tughluq (AH725-752/AD1325-1351). The coin is a ½ Tanka and dated AH730. Ref.: Goron/Goenka #D411The legend is Arabic, not Persian.The obv reads: al-Wala al-Sutlan l'Akal al-Nas be'Azam, Tughluq. Which has been translated as follows: If there were no Sultan verily the people would devour one another; Tughluq;The rev reads: al-Tai'awa Allah wa al-Tai'awa al-Rasul wa al-Wali, Muhammad 730. Which has been translated as follows: Obey Allah and obey the prophet and those in authority among you (Qura'an IV.62), Muhammad 730.
