Good quality coin of the famous Genghis Khan, with nice surfaces and complete legends, very rare!
The famous Genghis Khan (also known as Chingis/Chinghis Khan; 1162? August 1227), born Temujin, was the founder and Great Khan (emperor) of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his demise. After founding the Mongol Empire and being proclaimed "Genghis Khan," he started the Mongol invasions that resulted in the conquest of most of Eurasia. These included raids or invasions of the Kara-Khitan Khanate, Caucasus, Khwarezmid Empire, Western Xia and Jin dynasties. These campaigns were often accompanied by wholesale massacres of the civilian populations especially in the Khwarezmian controlled lands. By the end of his life, the Mongol Empire occupied a substantial portion of Central Asia and China. Under Ghengis' successors, the Moghol Empire expanded into China, most of Asia, the middle-East and Eastern Europe.
