Very rare high quality silver dirham, issued sometimes in the 1230's, during the reign of the Great Khan Ogedei, son of Ghengiz Khan. This type does not carry the name of the mint, but it might have been struck in Kurraman, based on the calligraphy and style. These coins are extremely rare, unpublished in most references.

Ögedei Khan, born Ögedei (c. 1186 – 11 December 1241) was the third son of Genghis Khan and second Great Khan (Khagan) of the Mongol Empire by succeeding his father. He continued the expansion of the empire that his father had begun, and was a world figure when the Mongol Empire reached its farthest extent west and south during the invasions of Europe and Asia. Like all of Genghis' primary sons, he participated extensively in conquests in China, Iran and Central Asia.
