Very nice Dinar @mo! Here is a Dirham from Tashkent, Uzbekistan that dates to approximately 902 AD (attributed as Album 1443):




We will keep the rest of today open for more entrants in this decade and then drop back to the 890s tomorrow.

Two great additions to this thread @palouche! We haven't had a five-coin decade in quite some time, so I'm going to also throw down this Dirham from Samarqand that dates to about 908 AD:

Another great contribution @mo! Here is a Dirham from the Samanid Empire (al-Shash mint) that also dates to 896-897 AD:

Thank you! :)

For 880-890, here's my Abbasid gold dinar, reign of Al-Mu'tamid 'Ala Allah, minted in Al-Rafiqa, year AH 274 (887-888 CE). The coin interestingly carries a swastika in the lower reverse field.

Neat coins, everyone!

I don't have much from the 9th century, so there's nothing from me for today or tomorrow, but I should have an entry for the 860s.

Here is my Denier issued in the name of King Eudes/Odo. He was the first King of the Robertian Dynasty. This coin was minted in Limonges rather than Blois:

For the decade of the 870s, here is a Dirham of Khorasan from the Banijurid Dynasty. As the date is not completely clear, it can only be dated to between 874 and 884 AD. It is attributed as Album 1443.




I'm looking forward to seeing what else pops up today before we drop back to the decade of the 860s tomorrow!

Nice dirham Spence from an unusual dynasty. Two digits of the date are clear written as "khams wa sittin" / "#1582;#1605;#1587; #1608; #1587;#1578;#1610;#1606;" ("five and sixty and ..."), the last digit would be 2, so the date would be AH [2]65 or 878-879 CE
