ABBASID, AL-MUQTADIR (295-320h). Dinar, Makka 299h. Obverse: In field: pellet | la ilaha illa | Allah wahdahu | la sharik lahu | Abu’l-‘Abbas ibn | amir al-mu’minin. Reverse: In field: lillah | Muhammad | rasul | Allah | al-Muqtadir billah | annulet. Weight: 4.02g. References: Diler, Islamic Mints -; cf Bernardi 242Ef [only known for 302h]. Very fine and of the highest rarity, apparently unpublished. This appears to be a new date for gold coins from Makka. While dinars issued during the reign of al-Muktafi are occasionally seen, Abbasid influence in Makka waned during the reign of al-Muqtadir, whose coins are far rarer.

Estimate: GBP 20000 - 30000
