Description:
Safavid, temp. Husayn I, AH 1105-1135 / AD 1694-1722, prestige civic copper, bronze falus (18.16g, 34mm). Shiraz AH 1115, lion walking right, A-3262A. Very rare. Beautiful blue-green patina. Choice Extremely Fine.

Prestige copper pieces were struck at several mints, mainly Isfahan (see item #383), usually with a lion facing right or left, sometimes with the sun behind.  Most were struck during the reign of Husayn I.  Because most known examples have been pierced or patched for mounting, it is clear that these prestige coins were honorific items for decorative use. This is the finest example of Shiraz the cataloguer has seen.
