Bengal, Beauty of Azam Shah Shah
« on: October 17, 2012, 05:15:24 PM »
Now a beauty from Ghyath al Din Azam Shah. He issued numerous types of coins. But this one is just a beauty. The coin is so beautiful at hand. I wander, probably Azam Shah and his successors issued the most beautiful coins. Large flan, nice detail, beautiful calligraphy. In a word so artistic. I consider these coins as just jewels of Bengal. G/G records this coin as B241, Other details of the coin such as mint and dates are appreciated.

Congratulations! Even as a "westerner" with a poor knowledge in Arabic I am able to enjoy the outstanding calligraphy of these coins.
May be there is something like a "horror vacui" (fear of unfilled space) of the die cutters - very similar to most Celtic coins.
Best regards, Afrasi
