This book is the second volume of an illustrated price guide to Islamic coins; the first volume was published in 2015. The Islamic market has long been hampered by two things: the lack of reliable information regarding values due to the historic volatility of auction prices for Islamic coins, and the lack of general reference works with illustrations. This book is an attempt to remedy both these problems. It is intended as an introductory guide, aimed at the general collector; suggestions for further reading are given throughout the book.

Volume 2 of The New Cambridge History of Islam is devoted to the history of the Western Islamic lands from the political fragmentation of the eleventh century to the beginnings of European colonialism towards the end of the eighteenth century. The volume embraces a vast area from al-Andalus and North Africa to Arabia and the lands of the Ottomans. In the first four sections, scholars – all leaders in their particular fields - chart the rise and fall, and explain the political and religious developments, of the various independent ruling dynasties across the region, including famously the Almohads, the Fatimids and Mamluks, and, of course, the Ottomans. The final section of the volume explores the commonalities and continuities that united these diverse and geographically disparate communities, through in-depth analyses of state formation, conversion, taxation, scholarship and the military.

Coins And Christianity

Throughout history coins have been used for celebration, proclamation and propaganda. It is hardly surprising that such a potent force as Christianity has featured prominently on coinage the world over; indeed, coins have always played a significant role in all aspects of the Christian faith. Kenneth Jacob traces the connection between coins and Christianity back to pre-Christian Greek and Roman issues depicting deities. The wealth of allusions to coins in the Bible, particularly in the New Testament, is examined for evidence of specific issues and denominations: can we identify which coins were the Tribute Penny or Judas Iscariot's 'thirty pieces of silver'? -- Back cover.

A Handbook Of Islamic Coins

This book provides an introduction to the coinages of the Near and Middle East, issued by the various dynasties that emerged from the religious state established by the Prophet Muhammad. The Islamic coinages of India and South East Asia are excluded because they are derived from different monetary concepts and cultural backgrounds. Each chapter begins with a summary of the main historical changes that are relevant to a general study of the coinage. This is followed by detailed commentary on the coinage with reference to the illustrations. The latter are reproduced at actual size, the better to appreciate the motifs and especially the fine art of calligraphy which is the very epitome of Islamic art. Detailed captions to the illustrations provide a "parallel text" complementing the more general historical material. A particularly valuable feature of the book are the nine maps specially drawn for it which were prepared to show the mint towns of the different dynasties. From these the extent of the spread of Islamic culture and coinage can be well seen.
