Hunnic and Turkic coins (350-800 AD)

The Huns were various related tribes of nomadic people from modern Mongolia or nearby areas who invaded Central Asia, the Caucasus, Eastern Europe , India and China between the 4th and 6th century AD. According to European tradition. The Huns minted various coins wherever they went - they were most familiar with the Sassanian drachmas, so most of their coins were based on their design, though they also minted very unique coins of their own. The obscurity and fascinating history of these coins makes them very popular with the collectors.
