Comments Sher Shah was a brilliant general and also a brilliant administrator. He drove the Mughal emperor Humayun from India and re-established the Delhi Sultanate. Among his many civil reforms was the introduction of the rupee, which continues as the Indian monetary unit to this day. Note the unusual form of the number 5 in the date. It is almost as if the die-cutter carved a 1 and then had to change it to a 5 .
