Old style coins continued to be struck at the newly acquired territories by Akbar. Malwa-style and weight bronze coins and silver tankas continued to be struck until ca.1000 AH at Mandu, Ujjain and Ujjainpur. After ca.1000 AH these coins were replaced by regular Imperial issues. The silver tankas like this one, especially in high quality, are rare.
