These rare coins imitated the coinage of Peroz. The Nezak Malkas (c. AD 630-711) were a Turkic dynasty ruling the Kabul Valley and Gandhara as vassals of the Western Turk Yabghu enthroned at Qunduz. In 711, the scion of the junior branch of the Nezak dynasty in Zabulistan unseated his relative, the Nezal Malka at Kabul.
