It's very little what i know about sasanian coinages, but wow, this one looks beautiful! Congrats for it ;)


Just noticed the "Anushirvan" in the title and only made the association with the Ilkhan ruler with this name. Had forgotten that he was named after the Sassanian emperor a mere 7 centuries later.
Nice specimen ! Thanks for showing.
