Details

The Bull and Horseman coinage of Northern India is a coin design issued from the 8th century CE to the 13th century CE with increasingly crude renditions overtime. Following the Islamic conquest of the region the new Muslim rulers continued to strike coins with this design, masking its iconography with Arabic legends and increased abstraction.
