Adding a recent mint attribution.Singhana is a recently re-discovered mint town that is situated in the copper mines area in Rajastan, close to its border with Haryana state. Aurangazeb coins have come to light from this mint. Posting a Jahangir coin of Singhana mint.
Singhana is only less than 40 Kms. from another Mughal copper mint, Narnul.
@:strange Your coin is a real challenge. I could build parts from this coin. If we get a chance to examine similar coins with more visible parts of legend we will be able to fix it. Otherwise, the parts will remain a mystery. I have made an overlay of what is visible and what I presume goes with it. But all these together is yet to make any sense. A Nazir ud din of some unknown dynasty might have been the issuer (Al dunya usually precedes wa al din. That with the (Na)zir will make it Nazir al din). We have to get a few more specimens before coming to any definite conclusion. Thanks.
Akbar came to power in AH.963. His regnal year usually marked as Ilahi year commenced a while later, but serves as ear-mark for his "urdu zafar qarin" coins issued from his military camps during campaigns. This coin no. Mgl.C#052-ar-1 is a urdu zafar qarin coin of Ilahi 46. This corresponds to AH.1009 and 1010 of Hijri calendar. (963+46= 1009). The first five months of AH.1009 fall in CE.1600 and the rest in 1601. Akbar's campaign against the Deccan and Burhanpur dates between CE.1599-1601 and ended with the conquest of Asirgarh fort in January 1601( ie. in the sixth month of AH.1009). This confirms that the campaign in Ilahi 46/AH 1009 was the one against Burhanpur that resulted in its annexation to the Mughal empire. Ilahi 46 on this particular coin thus signifies its origin during Akbar's Burhanpur campaign.
Dear OneDollarMule The coin you have posted has a floral design that was used as mint mark for Farukhabad and Murshidabad. But the legend it has on makes no sensible reading. It could be a fantasy issue or a crude copy.
