The coinage of the Mughal Empire is one of the most popular areas of Indian coin collecting. With beautiful gold, silver and bronze coinage, the beautiful coins of the Mughal Emperors are always sought after.

The Mughal Empire or Mogul Empire, self-designated as Gurkani, was an early-modern empire that controlled much of South Asia between the 16th and 19th centuries. For some two centuries, the empire stretched from the outer fringes of the Indus basin in the west, northern Afghanistan in the northwest, and Kashmir in the north, to the highlands of present-day Assam and Bangladesh in the east, and the uplands of the Deccan plateau in south India.
