This is arguably the most important coin ever struck in the Arabian Peninsula. It is the earliest gold coin which names a locality in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in this case the birthplace of the Faith, the Hijaz, the land of the Holy Cities of Makka and Medina.

This extremely rare dinar is considered to have been of gold mined at the Ma’dan Amir al-Mu’minin bi’l Hijaz, “the Mine of the Commander of the Faithful in the Hijaz”. Dr George C Miles, the most eminent Islamic numismatist of the twentieth century, identifies this mint with Ma‘dan (later Harrah) Bani Sulaym, southeast of Madina and northwest of Makka, on the pilgrimage route between Baghdad and Makka. Arab historians record that the Umayyad Caliph ‘Umar bin ‘Abd al-‘Aziz bought a piece of land, on which there was a mine, from Bilal bin al-Harith, who had received the land from the Prophet Muhammad himself. It is also virtually certain that Ma’dan Bani Sulaym is today’s Mahd al-Dhahab, the site of the gold mine worked by the Saudi Arabian Mining Syndicate.

The Abbasid revolution was displayed in the coinage by substituting the words of Qur’an surah 112 with the second phrase of the kalima, Muhammad rasul Allah in the reverse field on both their Dinars and Dirhams. In this way the Abbasids emphasised their kinship with the messenger of God, Muhammad.

This previously unrecorded dinar from the Red Sea port of ‘Aththar in the Tihama shows the continuation of Fatimid control in the south-western Arabian peninsula. This is the only known example of the coinage of al-Mustansir from this mint.

al-Muntazir (the ‘Expected’) was the imaginary son of al-Amir, who died without issue leaving a pregnant concubine whose child’s birth was never recorded. This coin demonstrates the extreme importance that the Fatimids placed on direct descendants of the Isma’ili imams. The fictive baby was named as Tayyib, who lent his name to a branch of Isma’ili Islam.

389 † Abaq (534-549h), overlords Great Saljuq Sanjar and Iraq Saljuq Mas’ud together with the Abbasid Caliph al-Muqtafi, Gold Dinar, Dimashq 538h, 3.54g (A A784). Good very fine, very rare. £8000-10,000

Damascus was the westernmost extension of Saljuq power. The Burids were an ephemeral dynasty which lasted for no more than half a century. Surprisingly their coinage, while resembling that of their contemporaries the Fatimids, bore legends that were purely Sunni, acknowledging the Abbasid Caliph al-Muqtafi and their Great Saljuq overlords Sanjar and Iraq Saljuq Mas’ud.

Rasulid

A Collection of Late Medieval Coins of The Ayyubids and Rasulids

525 † A Collection of Silver (462) and Copper (3) Late Medieval Coins of The Ayyubids and Rasulids of The Tihama, Hadramawt and Highlands of South-Western Arabia, Ayyubid Coins (73) and Rasulid Coins (392), struck between the mid-6th and mid-9th Centuries of the Hijra. This collection is probably the most comprehensive of its kind. It includes coins of virtually every ruler and every known mint during this period. This region was always known for its light-weight Islamic gold and silver coins, probably due to the virtual absence of a circulating copper coinage in the area. When the Ayyubids of Egypt sent members of their family to occupy this region they adopted a similar light-weight standard for their gold and silver. The collection possesses representative examples of the following Ayyubid rulers: al-Mu’azzam Turanshah (569-575h); al-Nasir Yusuf (known in the west as Saladin) (575-579h) al-‘Aziz Tughtekin (579-593h); al-Mu’izz Isma’il (593-598h); al-Nasir Ayyub (598-611h); al-Ma’sud Yusuf (612-626h) and, under the guidance of the Rasulid al-Mansur ‘Umar, al-Kamil Muhammad (626-627h); al-‘Adil Abu Bakr (627-631h); al-Kamil Muhammad for a second and last time (631-634h) This collection incorporates a superb selection of both Ayyubid and Rasulid Dirhams. They are generally struck on wafer-thin planchets which, because of their fragility, could not be struck in high relief. It can be said that it would be virtually impossible to assemble another comparable group of these coins, and it would be entirely suited for a specialist collector or museum coin cabinet. A complete inventory of this remarkable collection can be obtained from the auctioneers prior to the sale. (465) £120,000-150,000 The Silver Dirhams of the Ayyubids frequently displayed superb Kufic calligraphy in a variety of refined and artistic enclosures. These are among the most attractive of all the designs found on Islamic coins Rasulid coinage proper began in 634h, after al-Mansur ‘Umar (626-647h) had received caliphal recognition as ruler of his territories from alMustansir. He is recorded to have issued five types of silver coinage, distinguished by their various designs but relatively uniform weights. He was followed by the greatest of all Rasulid rulers, al-Muzaffar Yusuf (647-694h), and then by the latter’s son al-Ashraf ‘Umar II (694-696h), who was succeeded by his brother al-Mu’ayyad Da’ud (696-721h). Da’ud’s son al-Mujahid ‘Ali (721-764h) struck three different types of dirhams. The Rasulids displayed their allegiance to Sunni Islam by continuing to place the name of the last Abbasid Caliph, al-Mus’tasim, on their coinage for many decades after his deposition and death in 656h. It was al-Mujahid ‘Ali who made the great innovation of introducting pictorial designs on these coins. A lion was seen on those from al-Mahjam, a hawk at Zabid, two fish at ‘Adan and a seated ruler at Tha’bat. Ali’s son, al-Afdal al-‘Abbas (764-778h), continued to employ pictorial designs, but these were placed above and below the marginal legends instead of in the field as they had been previously. Under al-Ashraf Isma’il (778803h), the son of al-‘Abbas, ten different coinage designs were used, many only briefly. Under him the pictorial devices became more elaborate, frequently occupying a large area of the field. Among these were two fish, head to tail, at Adan, a lion attacking a bull at al-Mahjam (this design was taken from classical antiquity), a mounted falconer holding his hawk at Ta’izz, and a hawk attacking a hubayra at Zabid. Later on a lion appeared at ‘Adan and a seated ruler at al-Mahjam, then a chalice at ‘Adan, flower-like ornaments and finally three swords in a circle at Zabid. The next ruler, al-Nasir Ahmad (803-827h), is known for many different coinage types, but because they are largely undated it is impossible at this point to work out a sequence of his issues, as the Rasulid state had entered a period of rapid decline during his reign. The coinage of the last three rulers, al-Mansur ‘Abd Allah (827-830h), al-Ashraf Isma‘il II (830-831h) and al-Zahir Yahya (831-842h), is extraordinarily rare, which revealed the economic and political weakness of the dynasty.

The legends on this traditional Abbasid style donative dinar are interesting because the name of the caliph is omitted and that of the issuer, Ahmad, is placed in the lower line of both the obverse and reverse fields. This emphasises the personal nature of the donative, presumably given only to members of his own family and high-ranking administrators.

End of Sale


Information for Bidders Admission Admission to our Public Auction is free; by registering for the auction you are agreeing to abide by the conditions set out in our printed catalogue and on our website.

Examination of Lots You are encouraged to view the lots before sale and attend the auction in person. Viewing of the lots may be done by appointment in the week prior to the auction at our offices or on an official viewing day. The catalogue is printed with estimates alongside each lot. This is intended as a price guide for interested bidders. It is our opinion of the value of the lot but bidders should rely on their own judgement of the value. Bidders should be prepared for prices to rise if there is competition for the lot. All lots can achieve hammer prices both above and below the published pre-sale estimate. Usually each lot is reserved at 80% of the lower estimate and bids below this are unlikely to be accepted.

Bidding at the Auction Bidding may be carried out by you in person or by a representative of your choice (please ask us for further information). Please collect your bidding number from the registration table at the auction room. You should arrive in plenty of time for the lots you are interested in. A time guide is printed at the front of the catalogue and approximately 200 lots are sold per hour. However bidders are reminded that this is a guide only and Baldwin's will not be responsible if you miss your lot. If you do not have an account with us, we may ask you for a reference from a bank or other credit referee (eg another dealer or auction house) and you may be asked to leave a deposit before bidding.

Absentee Commission Bids If you are unable to attend the Auction personally, you may place a commission bid through us and we will try and purchase the lot for you at the lowest price possible. You must complete a Commission Bid Form found in this catalogue which must include your highest bid for each lot. All commission bids must be submitted in writing either by

post, email or fax to Baldwin's offices to arrive not later than 24 hours before the auction. We do not accept bids left by telephone. Please include your street address in emails. Commission bids received less than 24 hours before the auction will only be accepted at our discretion and we cannot guarantee that the commission bid will be placed. We do not charge for these services and therefore we will not be liable for errors in executing commission bids. We offer a state-of-the-art Live Bidding system over the internet via www.the-saleroom.com/baldwins. This service is free and requires you only to register your details, together with a valid credit card for verification. You may either bid live, making use of the audio and video, or leave commission bids on the website which will be automatically executed on your behalf. These commission bids cannot be seen by the auctioneer. Invoices will be mailed to you after the auction in the usual way

Purchase Price The price paid by the bidder is the hammer price plus 20% buyer's premium (plus VAT). Lots exported outside of the European Union may not be subject to VAT. Please ask for further information from us where this may apply to you. You are encouraged to arrange your own collection/shipment. Alternatively lots will be sent by Royal Mail, recorded and insured delivery. Postage and insurance will be charged as additional costs.

Payment An invoice will be supplied on request during and after the Auction showing the total amount due to us. You must pay in full before the lot(s) can be delivered to you.

Guarantee We are a member of the International Association of Professional Numismatists and therefore, as a buyer, you will benefit from a guarantee for all lots against forgeries as required by IAPN’s rules of membership. Please see the Conditions of Sale for details of the terms of our guarantee

CONDITIONS OF SALE 1.

APPLICATION AND CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP

1.1. By making a bid, a Bidder acknowledges his acceptance of these Conditions and will be bound by them. 1.2. Baldwin's acts as agent for the Seller for the sale of a Lot to the Buyer unless Baldwin's is the owner of the Lot. As such, Baldwin’s is not responsible for any default by the Seller or the Buyer. 1.3. The contract for the sale of a Lot is between the Seller and the Buyer and is subject to these Conditions and the Seller's Conditions. 2.

PRE-SALE AND DESCRIPTIONS

2.1. Statements made by us in a Catalogue, during the course of the Auction or elsewhere, describing a Lot including its authorship, origin, age, size, condition, genuineness, authenticity or value are intended as a guide for interested Bidders. These are statements of opinion only and should not be relied on as statements of fact. Illustrations of the Lots are for general identification only. 2.2. Lots by their nature are usually aged and varied in condition. The absence of any description of a defect, damage, modification or restoration in any Catalogue does not imply that there are none. 2.3. Coins are graded to accepted UK standards to the best ability of our specialists. You acknowledge that the grading of coins is subjective and may vary from specialist to specialist, as the process is by nature an art and not a science. For this reason, we do not automatically accept and are not bound by the opinions of third party coin grading services for any purposes including before and after the sale of a Lot. 2.4. If you are interested in a Lot, we strongly recommend that you view it in person before the Auction and form your own opinion of the description of the Lot.

4.4. Subject to Condition 4.2, the contract for the sale of the Lot is concluded on the fall of the hammer. 4.5.

All Lots are offered for sale subject to any Reserve.

4.6.

You cannot cancel your purchase of a Lot once the hammer has fallen.

5.

PAYMENT

5.1. The Purchase Price payable by a Buyer is the Hammer Price plus a Buyer’s Premium of 20% of the Hammer Price. VAT is payable in addition unless the Lot is exempt or zero-rated. 5.2. The symbol ‘G’ appearing next to a lot in this catalogue denotes the item is ‘Investment Gold’ and, therefore, a VAT-registered trader can submit a claim to H M Revenue and Customs to recover the VAT element of the Buyers’ Premium 5.3. Any lot marked with a dagger (†) is subject to import VAT at 5%, this will be added to the hammer price and is payable by the buyer if resident in the EU. If the lot is being exported outside the EU, this import VAT can be waived or refunded on proof of export. 5.4. The Buyer of a Lot shall pay the Purchase Price in full before the Lot can be delivered to the Buyer. 5.5. Except where Condition 5.4 applies, any part of the Purchase Price outstanding after the Auction shall be payable by you within 14 days of the date of the auction, the due date. 5.6. The Purchase Price is payable by you in full. You are not entitled to set-off any amounts that you claim are due from us or anyone else or make any other deductions.

2.5. We reserve the right to change any aspect of the published description of a Lot prior to the auction. Any change may be published on our website, displayed at the auction, announced by the auctioneer prior to the sale and/or communicated in any other manner.

5.7. Unless we have agreed in writing otherwise, you shall act on your own account as principal in respect of the sale and therefore if you accept a commission from a third party to bid on their behalf, you do so at your own risk and will remain personally liable (jointly with your principal) to us for the Purchase Price in accordance with these Conditions.

2.6.

If you submit a Commission Bid verbally (whether by telephone or otherwise), we shall not be responsible for any misunderstandings (by either us or our agents or you) in relation to your Bid. All bids made in this way must be confirmed in writing before the auction 3.5.

AUCTION SALE

4.1. Before the auction, all potential Bidders must notify their name and address to the auctioneer and if required provide proof of identity to our satisfaction and bank or other credit references. 4.2. The highest Bidder for each Lot shall be the Buyer. If there is a dispute, the auctioneer shall have absolute discretion to determine the dispute including re-offering the disputed Lot for sale. 4.3.

The auctioneer shall however have an absolute discretion to divide any Lot, to combine any two or more Lots, or to withdraw any Lot from the auction without giving any reason (including after the hammer has fallen). Bidding shall be regulated at the absolute discretion of the auctioneer. The auctioneer has the right to refuse any bid.

This is without prejudice to any other rights that we have for non-payment. 5.10. If you fail to comply with your obligations under these Conditions, the Lot, in respect of such non-compliance, may at our discretion be put up for sale at auction or privately and resold. In this case, you will be liable in full and will indemnify us for all losses, costs and expenses (including legal costs) incurred as a result, including the costs of the resale and the amount (if any) by which the Hammer Price obtained on the resale is less than the Hammer Price obtained on the original sale of the Lot to the Buyer. 6.

RISK, TITLE AND DELIVERY

6.1. The risk of damage/loss to the Lot will pass to the Buyer on the fall of the hammer. Title in a Lot will not pass to the Buyer until the Purchase Price has been paid in full. 6.2.
