Later Kidarites Jammu & Kashmir region: Vinayaditya Late 5th Century A.D. -- #BU50040

Vinayaditya

Late 5th Century A.D. Debased Gold Stater

Obv.: Abstracted king standing left before altar; 'Ka' in left field. 'Kidara Jaya'

Rev.: Degenerate rendering of goddess Ardoksho enthroned. 'Sri Vinaya Ditya'

Average weight: 7.6g. Average diameter: 20-22mm.

Mitchiner (ACW) 3656-3660

The Kidarite coinage developed from the later Kushano-Sasanian coinage of Northern India, resulting in a long line of coinage which gradually debased in both fineness and style. The final issues of Staters are apparently struck in nearly pure copper.

We were fortunate to acquire a small group of these late debased gold staters from India. These coins grade VF-EF and many still show some light adherence of dirt and minerals. Please see the photo at right for a typical example. Due to the hand manufacture of these pieces, yours will vary in appearance but will be of equal quality.

CRUSADERS The Latin East Kingdom of Jerusalem County of Acre Imitating Ayyubid caliph al-Amir 11th-12th Century AD Bezant (Dinar) -- #ME54512

AV Bezant (Dinar) 22mm. 3.89g. Acre mint(?) Imitating Misr 3rd Phase, struck 1187-1260

Poorly rendered Cufic legends in concentric circles; pair of pellets below central inscription.

Poorly rendered Cufic legends in concentric circles.

Metcalfe LE 136 var. (pellets on reverse); CCS 5c var. (same)

EF. Choice strike for the type. An atypically light flan crack is noted. A 'Bezant' (Bisant or Besant), perhaps derived from 'Byzance' is a medieval merchant's name for any Arabic Dinar of the weight of a Byzantine solidus. The Crusader Bezants were probably named after the 'Saracenic Bezant', another current term for the coin. The two additional pellets below the central inscription make this coin an interesting variant that is seldom offered.

Pseudo-Cufic legends.

Balog & Yvon 7; Metcalf, Crusades 487; CCS 4a

Good VF. Scarce earlier type. Original flan crack from time of manufacture visible, but resealed by striking the coin. Caliph al-Mustansir ruled from 1036-1094. This earlier imitative type features obviously blocky calligraphy in the spirit of the original Islamic type, but blundered. It lacks the Cross, and letters B or T added later on more common types.
