Muhammad Hasan Khan was Khan of Ganja from (1174-1195 AH)(1760 to 1780 AD). He was from the Ziyad-ogli branch of the Qajar family. He came to power after the murder of his father, Shah Verdi Khan, with the Georgian help.
Muhammad Hasan Khan was taken to captivity in Karabakh and killed in 1785 AD during the revolt of Ganja against the foreign rule led by Muhammad's relative Hajji Beg.
Nice rare silver coin.
