Looking at this coin gives me great pleasure Amit. Thanks for posting it.

I always look for symbolism. If this had been a "modern" coin, the dots that form the squares on both sides would have been symbolic in number representing the number of provences, the number of royal houses, an auspicious number, the number of elements, the number which identifies the mint, the number of something. These, however, appear to be completely random. I wonder why?
