Coins and History of Medieval India

Parmeshwari Lal Gupta (Author) Sanjay Garg (Editor)
Synopsis Coins play an important role in the development of mankind. After serving their role as currency in their respective periods, they assume a new character as a reliable and unbiased source of history. The importance of coins as a source for ancient Indian historiography has long been realized by the historians. However, for medieval Indian historiography the numismatic evidence provided by the coins have so far not achieved its due position – a fact underlined throughout the writings of Dr. Parmeshwari Lal Gupta – the world renowned doyen of Indian numismatics. The essays presented in this Volume cover various aspects of medieval Indian history-from the Sultans of Delhi to the East Indian Company and have been selected amongst Dr. Gupta’s large number of learned writings contributed in various prestigious journals over a span of fifty years. The Volume will, thus, command the interest of historians, numismatists, coin-collectors and the students of Indian history in general.
