NOTE : This is a contemporary fake; Unlike modern forgeries made to deceive the collector, these were faked in ancient times and were intended to be used in day to day transactions; This dinar has actually circulated in Medieval times in the market place, as the high points are worn and reveal the bronze core of the coin. The weight ( 3 grams) and texture of the coin are also an indication for a contemporary fake; However it may have been struck from legitimate dies; These are very seldom seen in Islamic coins, considering the very heavy penalty associated with making or using such fakes.
