Al Mujahid Ali. ruled from AH 721 to 764 (AD 1322 to 1363), and was the first to introduce the animal designs specific to the mints.

Denomination : Silver Dirhem.  Mint : al-Mahjan (Lion).

Date : This coin came to me with the date read as AH 784, but that does not fall within the reign of this ruler, and must have been miss-read.  If anyone can read it on the image, I would appreciate hearing from them. 

Reference : Album-1108.3.

Size : 28.7 x 29.2 mm.  Weight : 1.80 grams.  (large but very thin)

Grade : aVF with a good silver appearance, and none of the edge chips one often sees on these.

Obverse : Arabic inscriptions.

Reverse : Arabic inscriptions. around a Lion walking left (the inset at the top shows an enlargement of the lion).
