Independent Kingdoms - Afsharid Silver
Afsharid, Nadir Shah (AH 1148-1160, 1735-1747 AD), Very Rare Silver Rupee,
Dar al-Khilafat Shahjahanabad ( FULL MINT ) ; AH 1152,
Obverse: Sultan hasht bar salatin Jahan, Shahanshah Nadir Shah Sahib qiran, “Sultan over the Sultans of World, the king of kings Nadir, lord of the planetary conjunctions”,
Reverse: Zar dar al khilafat Shahjahanabad khallad Allah mulkahu 1152.
Note : Despite being outnumbered by six to one, Nader Shah crushed the Mughal army and invaded India in AH 1151. He captured Delhi, then returned it to the Mughal emperor Muhammad Shah in AH 1152 in exchange for the imperial Peacock Throne, the Koh-i-Noor and Darya-ye Noor diamonds and the contents of the imperial treasury estimated around seven hundred million rupees. The plunder seized from India was so rich that Nader stopped taxation in Iran for a period of three years following his return.

This is the conquest coin that proclaims Nadir's defeat of the Mughal Emperor Muhammad Shah and his occupation of Delhi which was formerly known as Shahjahanabad, Nadir Shah held the city for few months, Nadir restored Muhammad Shah in exchange for the contents of the Mughal treasury, allegedly some 700,000,000 rupees, plus the Kohinoor diamond (Koh-i-Nur, the largest cut diamonds in the world, weighing 105.6 carats (21.12 g). It is part of the British Crown Jewels.) and Mughal throne (the Peacock Throne, still in Tehran) and other spoils,

Note: The Shah of Iran, Nadir Shah, the founder of the Afsharid dynasty, took advantage of the weak leadership and instability following the death of Aurangzeb to invade India in February 1739. Having crossed the Khyber Pass, his forces were able to capture several areas in the western frontiers of the Mughal Empire, including Kabul, Ghazni, and Lahore. Punjab's Governor requested assistance from the Mughal Emperor, Muhammad Shah, but was denied. Muhammad Shah led the Mughal forces against Nadir Shah despite the reluctance of his commanders. Muhammad Shah surrendered in less than three hours after the Battle of Karnal on 13 February 1739. On 12 March 1739, Nadir Shah and Muhammad Shah entered Delhi in which Nadir Shah declared himself king and assumed control over the city and its treasures.

There was no end to the terror unleashed by Nadir Shah in Delhi, as it soon spread to other cities of Hindustan, including Ahmadabad, Azimabad, Bhakkar, Lahore, Muhammadabad Banaras, Multan, Murshidabad, Peshawar, Qandahar, Sahrind, Sind, Tatta, Derajat, Najibabad, and Shahjahanabad (Delhi). To demonstrate the authority of their rulings, Islamic rulers often built mints in the cities they conquered and issued coins to symbolize their authority. Mughal authority was further weakened due to the invasion, which resulted in substantial wealth and treasure losses. A significant turning point in Indian history, which led to the rise of regional powers and ultimately to the downfall of the Mughal Empire, occurred as a result of this event.

When Nadir Shah advanced upon Shahjahanabad in December 1738 (the ninth month of AH 1151) he occupied the capital of Punjab and returned to Lahore at the end of AH 1152, which began on April 10th, AD 1739. Coins from this period from the Lahore mint are exceptionally rare, with only four specimens known to exist. This mint's name is accompanied by its epithet, "Seat of the Sultanate." These coins serve as tangible artifacts of Nadir Shah's invasion and are highly sought after by collectors and historians alike.
