Understanding the Coins of Bengal


The focal point of this volume is on the coins that were in use as money in Bengal during the Magadha Janapada, Gupta Dynasty, Pala era, Harikela and Akara kingdoms, Sultanate and Nawabs\' period and finally the eary East India Company Period. A few coins of the neighboring kingdoms have also been illustrated in the last chapter as they are supposed to have been in use in at least some parts of the Bengal because of political, topographical and/or other reasons.
This volume would be of immense interest to scholars of South Asian numismatics and the history of the two Bengals.
