Abstract:   (1741 Views)
Coin is of the most important sources for studying societies in the past and can shed a light on dark aspects of society’s political-religious and economical status. The short period of Afsharid is of particular importance in the history of coin due to the various coinage from the perspective of engravings, concepts and written words on them, in geographical landscape from Caucasia to India’s states. The main question of the research is that how were the Afsharid coins engravings and how they differ from those of before and after periods? This research through a comparative method has studied the coinage process in Afsharid Period from being influenced by Safavid king’s tradition and coinage method in the Indian subcontinent to specific innovations of Afsharid mints, and its coinage has been compared with other coinage before Afsharid period. The finding of research indicates that Nader’s approach in coinage was defending Iran’s corporeality, royal authority, conquest and realism in applying labels and titles, whilst his successors had returned to the coinage tradition of Safavid period. 
Keywords: Afsharid, coinage, Afsharid Coins, Historical sources.
