Origin: These thick silver half rupee coins date back to India's Mughal Empire and were minted under Akbar the Great (1556 - 1605 CE). Written on the obverse side of the coin is Akbar's name and title, while the reverse shows a portion of the Six Kalimas. These Kalimas are six central phrases often recited by those who practice Islam.
Akbar the Great was one of the most well regarded emperors of the Mughal Empire. Ruling over a culturally diverse empire, Akbar strategically used diplomacy and religiously tolerant policies to win over the support of his non-Muslim subjects. The Mughal Empire tripled in both size and wealth during this time, and a golden age began for Indo-Persian culture.
Each includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
