Why this is a
Masterpiece

The state of Chagatay, who is the second son of Chinggis Khaan, was situated in Central Asia until the late 14th Century. Its coins usually show the Degree, the Bow or the Bundan seal, representing Chagatay's decendants. This coin is unusual because it is illustrated by all three forms as well as the Degree tamgha on the reverse.

History of the Object
The coin is round and has the Bundan, bow-type Degree seals of Qaidu and Duwa Khan on the obverse. The Degree tamgha was printed on the reverse.
