Genghis Khan. Gold In his name. Gold Dinar. Bukhara mint, circa 618-624 AH. Album-1964. Very rare! Some strike weakness but unusually completrle texts for type. Legends in Arabic: Obverse: Jankeez Khan (Genghis Khan) Al-Adil (The wise) Al-Azam (The Great) Reverse: Bukhara La ilah ila (There is no God but Allah) Allah Muhammad Rasul (Muhammad is the prophet of Allah) Whilst most coins associated with him were either in his title, anonymous or the Abbasid Caliph of which his territories paid in reverence to, this is one of the very rare coins which has the name of Genghis Khan himself struck on it. Characteristic of these Bukharan issues, the strike and legends are often weak and of very crude. This specimen however has the kalimah, mint and most of the texts visible and clear. Whilst "Khan" is very clear, some strike weakness on his name is there but traces are visible. Silver Silver dirham. In the name of Genghis Khan himself. 1206 - 1227 AD. Ghazna mint. Dark toned. Ex Jim Farr collection. After years of finding a choice well struck specimen. Genghis Khan requires little need for introduction as the great Khan who united the Mongols and set the foundation as one of history's greatest conquerors for his descendants to come. This is one of the few rare specimens of coinage that bears his name in full as opposed to just his title as the Khan. Minted by his travelling mint of his horde while chasing after the fallen Khwarezm ruler upon his conquest of the Khwarezm Empire. This silver dirham has the following inscriptions ( Special thanks to my friend Rafae L Suud for his kind inscription for Arabic readers): Obverse: Al-Adil - The Just Al-Azam - The Great Jankeez Khan - Genghis Khan Reverse: (Name of the Abbasid Ruler) Al-Nasir Li Deen il-llah Amir Al-Mumineen Apart from the historical significance, this coin also bears a special memento as it belonged to my late friend Jim Farr, a well respected numismatist, member of the Oriental Numismatic Society and overall great man. Billon Billon Jital. Ghazna mint, Khwarezm Empire, Northern Afghanistan before it's destruction by his Mongol Horde. AD1206-1227. Name of Caliph al-Nasir, title of Genghis Khan as "Adl Khaqan al-Azam" (coin of the great Khan). Album 1969, Tye 329. Rare in full and centered condition. ************************************************ As one of history's great conquerors, Genghis Khan need little introduction. These 3 coins completes my set of 3 metals in his title and name (Gold, Silver and Billon). However the Khwarezm empire is worth mentioning due to their arrogance bringing about their total annihilation. When the Caliph decided to execute the ambassadors of the Khan, Genghis Khan himself led an expedition to wipe out the Khwarizm Empire which dominated central Asia and Transoxania. The Caliph became a puppet vassal of the Khan before the entire empire was annexed into the horde.
