441AVSLM) ISLAMIC GOLD DINAR OF THE GHAZNAVID MAHMUD 3.59 GRMS STRUCK AT GHAZNA 4XX AH, ALBUM 1619, CRUDE VF
* HISORICAL BACKGROUND OF MAHMUD : This coin was struck in the reign of the Ghaznavid Mahmud (Abul-Kasem Ibn Sebuktekin), 388-421AH/ 998-1030 AD. In 977 AD Sebuktekin came to power. Under him the Ghaznavid tradition of raiding the plains of India in search of treasure and slaves was established, but it was his son Mahmud who became fully independent, penetrated down the Ganges valley to Muttra, and in the north he set up the Oxus as his frontier with rival power of the Quarakhanids and annexed Khawarazm. Mahmud's empire at his death was thus the most extensive and imposing edifice in eastern Islam, and his army the most effective military machine of the age.
