The Mirzas were a sub-clan of the Timurids who conquered northern India and established the Mughal empire. Most of the fractional gold of Badakhshan bore the names of the Mughal rulers, Babur, Humayun, and Akbar. The gold denomination is normally quoted as a 1/4 ashrafi of circa 1.0-1.10 grams. This smaller denomination appears to be unpublished.
