Both dynastic names represent titles with Kara Kagan being the most important Turkish title up till the end of the dynasty. The Khanate ruled Transoxania in Central Asia from 999-1211. Their capitals included Kashgar, Balasagun, and Uzgen.The Karakhanids issued very interesting copper and silver coinage in numerous mints and varieties and most of their coins are scarce to rare.
