ARCHAEOLOGY AND COINS

bin Sam was the founder of the first Pathan dynasty of Delhi, and was succeeded by a long line of Sultans. The Pathan and Moghal coins bear Arabic and Persian legends. There were mints at Lahore, Multan, Hafizabad, Kalanaur, Derajat, Peshawar, Srinagar and Jammu. An issue of coins peculiar to the Panjab is that of the Sikhs. Their coin legends, partly Persian, partly Panjabi, are written in the Persian and Gurmukhi scripts. Amongst Sikh mints were Amritsar, Lahore, Multan, Dera, Anandgarh, Jhang, and Kashmir.
