Duriba fi zaman al-abd al-rafi rahmat allah muhammad bin // al-sultan al-sa'id al-shahid tughluq shah, fi saneh tis arba'in wa deb miat. 19mm, 9.12 grams. NM (Delhi?), dated (with the date written out) to 749 AH (1348 AD). Goron/Goenka #D371.

High quality example, well-centered. This is a rare type with the word "bin" placed after "Muhammad" on obverse. This type is much rarer than D370.

Muhammad bin Tughluq was born to Ghiyas-ud-din Tughlaq, who was in turn the son of a Turkic slave father and a Hindu Indian mother, and was the founder of the Tughluq dynasty after taking control of the Delhi Sultanate. He saw a long and eventful reign - numismatically, he left a fascinating record which included numerous coin types which included remarkable issues of fiduciary bronze tankas and half-tankas.
