Coins of Mediaeval India

Sutapa Sinha (Editor) Pratip Kumar Mitra (Editor)
Synopsis The present work describes one of the largest finds of Mediaeval coins of India discovered in recent times. The trove unearthed at Chandir Jhar village in the Alipurduar district of West Bengal contains 767 silver coins belonging to the Suri Sultans of Delhi, Bengal Sultans, Bahmani Sultans, Mughal Emperor Akbar, kings of Tripura and Koch Behar, covering a period of nearly 240 years. The authors have critically analysed the hoard in the context of history and numismatics and carefully examined the coins in an exhaustive descriptive catalogue. The work is a welcome and significant addition to the numismatic literature and will serve as a model for publication of other coin hoards from India.
