This beautifully patinated, ancient Kushan Empire copper coin has been set in sterling silver to create a piece of wearable history.
The vast Kushan Empire reigned for 500 years, spanned from Northern India to Central Asia and was a major player in the Silk Road trade.
The coin designs were inspired by ancient Roman and Greek currency. They depict, over time, the current King on one side, a Deity on the other, and include symbols and mottos. The Deities chosen for the flip side of the coin illustrate how the individual Kings wished to be perceived.
This enduring style of personal propaganda became an invaluable historical resource in revealing their intricate political history.
