Western Kshatrapas coin

Western Kshatrapas coin

The Western Kshatrapas were probably a Scythian dynasty that ruled a large kingdom in western India from the 1st to the early 5th century. This dynasty produced a remarkably consistent series of silver coins from the beginning to the end of their rule.

The Kshatrapas have a very rich and interesting coinage. It was based on the coinage of the earlier Indo-Greek Kings, with Greek or pseudo-Greek legend and stylized profiles of royal busts on the obverse. The reverse of the coins, however, is original and typically depict a thunderbolt and an arrow, and later, a chaitya or three-arched hill and river symbol with a crescent and the sun, within a legend in Brahmi. These coins are very informative, since they record the name of the King, of his father, and the date of issue, and have helped clarify the early history of India. Their coinage weighed between 2.0 gms to 2.5 gms.
