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.

Zain al-'Abidin was the first sultan to issue silver coins. This coin does not carry the 7-pellet flower under the word sultan on the obverse that is seen on GG K9 or Rajgor 2797. Instead, it shows a large single pellet, perhaps representing the sun. A CHOICE specimen of a SCARCE coin, on a large 17x17 flan!
