This book is a follow up to the author’s Coinage of Akbar: The Connoisseur’s Choice (2005), and Coins of Jahangir: Creations of a Numismatist (2013). Shah Jahan’s currency was unique in several ways. His coins were issued before he ascended the throne, and continued to be issued till well after he was deposed and imprisoned by Aurangzeb, in 1068. A rupee issued from Junagarh as late as ah 1071 is available. The exquisite calligraphy appears in all the four contemporary styles, Nastaliq, Naskh, Sulus and Tughra which were in use. There is a fair sprinkling of couplets on the coins too. Nazrana coins were struck as usual. Nisars were issued in as many as four varieties in gold and at least forty-four in silver, including the pre-accession ones from Lahore and Kabul. Another special feature of coins minted by Shah Jahan is the many different ways in which the Emperor’s name and titles appear on them.
This comprehensive monograph illustrates over 850 specimens of Shah Jahan’s coins curated from all over the world – from museums, auction catalogues and private collections. An effort has been made to update the study with images of coins surfacing lately with the addition of an appendix.

An Officer of the Indian Police Service, Andrew Verity Liddle retired as the Director General of The Central Reserve Police Force in September 1996. He has been collecting and studying Mughal coins for several decades, with special focus on the coins of the Grand Mughals.
