The Tiflis Dirhams of Möngke Khān


The dirhams of Möngke Khān represent the first major emission of silver coinage in Georgia following the Mongol conquest roughly a generation previously. Struck in the Georgian capital city of Tiflis (modern Tbilisi) from the middle of AH 652 to perhaps as late as the first month of AH 660 (AD 1254–1261), these coins circulated widely throughout the South Caucasus and adjacent areas.
