Comments The Kashmir Sultanate was not formed by conquest. Rather, it had been ruled for centuries by a Hindu dynasty until Shah Mirza, a Muslim from Swat and Chief Minister of the raja, married the raja's widow upon his death and assumed the throne in AH 747 (1346 CE). The Sultanate persisted until Kashmir was finally annexed by Akbar in AH 995 (1587 CE). The coinage of the Kashmir Sultanate is unique in that it has its own weight standard ... the sasnu of approximately 6.2 gm. All the coins are scarce to rare.

Haidar Dughlat of Kashgar invaded Kashmir in 1533 and issued coins in the name of his king, Sa'id Khan. This incursion was short-lived, however, and, some years later, Haidar Dughlat was to return apparently as a vassal of the Mughal emperor Humayun. The Sa'id Khan coins, issued over a very short period of perhaps less than a year, are all RARE.
