Why this is a
Masterpiece

The coin is of great historical value.

History of the Object
After the death of Nadir Shah (1736-1747) his state broke up. Twenty small feudal states (khanates) were formed on the territory of Azerbaijan which were ruled by local feudal lords (khans). A khan's power was a kind of a miniature form of the Shah's power, possessing all the regalia of power: throne, crown, Bunchuk (symbol of power), stamps, banner. Khanates minted their own coins - silver abbasi (3.5 g) and Shahi (about 1 g), each khanate in its capital, but minted anonymously. In all major Khanate capitals autonomous fulus (copper coins) were struck. In Panakhabad, the capital of Karabakh khanate, large silver coins "Panahabad" (about 5 g) were minted.
