Why this is a
Masterpiece

The coin is an important historical object, indicating the entry of Azerbaijan into the Arab Caliphate.

History of the Object
The entry of Azerbaijan into the great theocratic empire of the world - the Arab Caliphate led to significant changes in the socio-economic, spiritual and political life of the country. "Islamization" of the Caliphate revealed itself, primarily, in the coin business. At the end of VII century according to the currency reform of Abdul Malik's new "national" currencies: the gold dinar (1 misgal = 4.26 g), the silver dirham (2.98), and the copper fels (2-3 g) were minted. Azerbaijan and Aran became one of the first vilayats, where post-reform coins of the Caliphate were minted. There were more than 50 mints in the Caliphate, ten of which were placed in Azerbaijani cities.
