Mughal ; Shah Alam Bahadur, Azamnagar Gokak Mint, Silver Rupee,
Obv: Sikka Mubarak Shah Alam Bahadur Badshah Ghazi,
Rev: sana julus & zarb Azamnagar Gohkak, Weight : 11.44 ; Very Rare.
Gokak is a small town located about 60 miles to the Northeast of Belgaum. It served as a garrison town in medieval Deccan and came into Mughal hands soon after the fall of Bijapur. It subsequently became the headquarters of an administrative subdivision under the province (Sarkar) of 'Azamnagar and was transferred to the Nawabs of Savanur when Abdul Rauf Diler Khan secured his tenure from Aurangzeb.
The mint continued striking coins in the reign of Shah Alam Bahadur but the coins show a marked variance from earlier issues. The quality of engraving is poor and, peculiarly, 'Gokak' is written with an additional 'H' following the 'Go' as 'Goh Kak'.

History of the Vishnukundins
After the decline of the Satavahanas, the Andhra region was ruled initially by the Ikshvakus and later by the Vishnukundins. The Vishnukundins rose to power around 5th century AD and ruled from Vinukonda in Guntur Distt of Andhra, controlling areas in the Deccan, Orissa and parts of South India. "Vishnukundina" is a Sanskritised name for Vinukonda.
The most powerful Vishnukundin king was Madhavavarman I who performed eleven Aswamedhas and his kingdom at one point of time extended upto the Narmada river on north. It is assumed that the Vishnukundins assumed independence from the Pallavas between 450 AD and 500 AD. Earlier to it, probably Vinukonda was governed by the Vishnukundin family members under the suzerainty of Pallavas.
The Vishnukundin dynasty was brought to an end by the conquest of Eastern Deccan by the Chalukyas under Pulakesin II in 624 AD
