Description

FATIMID, AL-ZAHIR (411-427h). Dinar, Filastin 424h. In fields: letter zayn in centres. Weight: 3.93g. References: Nicol 1505 var.; cf Morton & Eden auction 96, 28 April 2018, lot 132, same dies. Has probably been made round for use in jewellery, otherwise good fine and extremely rare. Nicol records a handful of examples of this mint and date, all of which have the letter ﻑ in the centres rather than ﺯ as here. The significance of these letters has not been established, but the present coin demonstrates that both are found on dinars of Filastin dated 423h and 424h.

Estimate: GBP 2000 - 3000
