Persia, Safavid, Shah Tahmasp I 930-984 AH , Larin (hairpin money) 


The larin was a silver coin struck on a folded-over piece of silver wire, either with special rectangular dies or with ordinary coin dies. Normally only fragment of the inscriptions is visible. They are popularly known as hairpin money. The earliest larins were struck at the inland town of Lar and the coastal town of Jarun but later issues (beginning with TahmaspI) were struck at numerous mints. The city name Lar was the root of the denominational term. Larin were intended for Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean trade.
