The Standing Caliph Coinage by Tony Goodwin

ISBN: 978-1- 909492-63- 9
Paperback, 169 pages, illustrated throughout (Archetype Publications 2018) 

The Standing Caliph coinage of late Seventh Century Syria was highly unusual in having an image of the Umayyad caliph ‘Abd al-Malik on the obverse. First issued in Jerusalem around 690CE, it was then struck in considerable variety, in both gold and copper, at 19 separate mints. This is the first comprehensive survey of the Standing Caliph coinage and describes images, legends and mint practices in detail. It also includes historical background to show how the coinage fitted in to the caliph’s wide ranging programme of reforms. The book concludes with a catalogue of 450 coins, all of which are illustrated. It is aimed at numismatists, archaeologists and collectors, but should also be of interest to students of early Islamic history and art.
