Farrukhsiyar. Rupees of Ahmedabad - Various dates.
« on: March 28, 2018, 12:16:44 PM »
I have been, for some time working on collecting coins of Ahmedabad Mint - date wise. Though it appeared to be a simple task at first, it took me a fair while to pick up even a few coins with the AH on the flan. This is so because the date on the coins is engraved at the bottom on the obverse till almost the last 2 years and is invariably off the flan. Even the later coins of 1130 & 1131 - which have the AH date at 9 Oclock position, are difficult to find with the full date on the coin.

To start with, here is a small note on the dates of this ruler courtesy our mentor Jan Lingen (Oesho).
Jahandar was defeated on 14th Zi-l-hajja 1124 = 01-01-1713 and died one month later on 16 Muharram 1125 = 01-02-1713. Farrukhsiyar was enthroned at Patna (Azimabad) on 29 Safar 1124 = 26-03-1712. On the 9th of Jumadi II, 1125 (22-06-1713) orders were issued to delete the reign of Jahandar from the records and treating as non-existent, dating Farrukhsiyar’s reign from his enthronement on 29 Safar 1124.
Farrukhsiyar was enthroned in Patna (Azimabad), and it is possible that he already struck coins there during the reign of Jahandar Shah as no issues of Jahandar Shah of Azimabad are known. The possible date combinations are:

1124 / Ahd: 01-01-1713 to 17-01-1713
1125 / Ahd: 17-01-1713 to 22-06-1713
1125 / Ry.2: 22-06-1713 to 07-01-1714
1126 / Ry.2: 07-01-1714 to 05-03-1714
1126 / Ry.3: 05-03-1714 to 27-12-1714
1127 / Ry.3: 27-12-1714 to 23-02-1715
1127 / RY 4: 23-02-1715 to 17-12-1715
1128 / RY 4: 17-12-1715 to 12-02-1716
1128 / RY 5: 12-02-1716 to 05-12-1716
1129 / RY 5: 05-12-1716 to 01-02-1717
1129 / RY 6: 01-02-1717 to 24-11-1717
1130 / RY 6: 24-11-1717 to 21-01-1718
1130 / RY 7: 21-01-1718 to 13-11-1718
1131 / RY 7: 13-11-1718 to 10-01-1719
1131 / RY 8: 10-01-1719 to 18-02-1719.

I believe that no coins were minted during the period 1124 / Ahd since the date combination ran for just one week.

I have yet not had the fortune to see a coin dated AH 1125 / ahd.

Edit: I just picked up the coin dated 1125 / Ahd
