Comments

This coin is one of the rarities of Qajar coinage; a copper qiran (kran)!! In addition to Isfahan (1287), examples from Astarabad (1279), Tabriz (1279), Tehran (1278) and Kirmanshahan (no date) have been reported. They are made from the original and official dies. Album "speculates" that they may be a contemporary forgery that were intended to be silver plated at the later date from a stolen official die!! The truth is that we DO NOT KNOW!! More research is needed.

Nasir al-din Shah's hammered Qirans were made from 1264AH until 1295 when machine struck coins were introduced. From 1264 till 1271 the standard weight for qirans were 5.37gr.(type A) but from 1271 onward the reduced weight was 4.99gr (2nd standard).
