The Forbidden Coins of Emperor Jahangir

Interested in the originals? You'll have to visit the British Museum or else track down a private collector see these rare 17th century coins for yourself.

The designs, featuring animals and humans in their zodiac depictions, were considered idolatrous in the Islamic central Asian Mughal empire where they were first struck by Emperor Jahangir. His devoutly religious son and successor Shah Jahan decreed that any person caught in possession of the coins would be put to death.

It's amazing that we even know of these coins' existence today, as most of them were collected up and melted down. However, a precious few survived, making them some of the rarest coins in India, and much sought-after collector's items.
