Ashmolean Museum Oxford
by Norman D. Nicol
This volume describes close to 2100 coins of the early Abbasid dynasty struck in gold and silver.
The collections included in the catalogue are those of the Heberden Coin Room in the Ashmolean, and the Shamma Collection. The gold coinage without mintname is listed first, followed by issues in both gold and silver, struck at the many mints of the Islamic Empire. The mints are arranged in Arabic alphabetical order. At the end of the catalogue are found examples of imitation and counterfeit gold coins.
