Gold Dinars of Al-Ma'mun

These are the dinars (gold coins) inscribed in the reign of Caliph al-Ma'mun (r. 813-833 CE). Notice that they consist of inscriptions only and not illustrations, as was the case with Rashidun and early Umayyad coins, the Umayyad Caliph Abd al-Malik standardized coins, this pattern was taken up by the Abbasids as well.
