First Islamic Dinar movement from byzantine to purely Islamic dinar 


1-first dinar during or beginning of Islam
Byzantine Empire, Heraclius, Heraclius Constantine, and Heraclonas, 632 - 641 A.D.
In 632, Heraclonas, Heraclius younger son, was designated Caesar and added to the coinage. Heraclonas was seven years old. The Heraclian monogram on the reverse replaces the more typical obverse inscription.



*we notice here the cross on their heads and hands , in revers and latine inscription and cross also on upper stairs   




2- Presumed Umayyad, temp. the Caliph Mu’awiya b. Abi Sufyan (41-60h) or, more likely, the Caliph ‘Abd al-Malik b. Marwan (65-86 h), otherwise anonymous. Dechristianised imitation of a Gold Solidus of the Emperor Heraclius with his sons Heraclius Constantine on the left and Heraclonas on the right. The central figure is extravagantly moustachioed and bearded, while the others have long hair which appears from under their rudimentary crowns, which resemble the lids of soup tureens. All three hold staffs with knobs in their right hands. Rev: a tau cross on four steps with Heraclian monogram on the left and an I on the right, around: VICTORIA AUGU, below CONOB, undated, but the original issued between 632 and 641 CE, Ø 20.0 mm, wt. 4.431 g. (unrecorded obvious die, reverse as Spink Zurich Auction 18, February 1986, lot 86). About extremely fine, extremely rare.



*here all crosses dropped/ removed  and in revers cross changed to dash --




3-Umayyad Imperial Image Type, anonymous temp. ‘Abd al-Malik b. Marwan, Gold Solidus. No mint name, but presumably struck in Damascus, undated (c. 72, 73, 74 H). Obv: Three stylised standing figures, similar to those on the previous coin, but their crowns have been transformed into the wide flat caps of mountain tribesmen. Their hair is more neatly trimmed and the moustache on the central figure is less flamboyant. Rev: a pole on four steps with a globe at its summit flanked by a remnant of the former Byzantine date, B to the left and I to the right. In the margin at 12:00: bism Allah la ilah illa Allah, at 6:00 wahda Muhammad rasul Allah, ("in the name of God there is no god but God, He is unique, Muhammad is the messenger of God"), Ø 21.0 mm, wt. 4.245 g


*no cross and revers Victoria replaced by tawheed bism Allah la ilah illa Allah, at 6:00 wahda Muhammad rasul Allah, ("in the name of God there is no god but God, He is unique, Muhammad is the messenger of God") and cross replaced or dash - by boll

4-Abd al-Malik depicted on the first coins in history indicating Muslim influence in the Arab world – over 100 years after Muhammad was suppose to have died. al-Malik appears on the coins with the same description given to prophet Mohammed and this dinar appeared in date 74 , 75 , 76 Hijri




finaly : the purely dinar  with number 5

Abd al-Malik (65-86h), Gold Dinar, no mint, 77h, 4.29g (Walker, p.84:186); A 125). Small scrape in lower obverse field and light graffiti in lower reverse field, otherwise about extremely fine and extremely rare. For many collectors in the field of Islamic numismatics the year 77h Dinar is the most desirable coin ever struck
* written on date revers ( Bism allah doriba hada aldinar fi sanat sabaa wo sabaeen = in the name of Allah this dinar dated in year seventy seven )
after dinar 77 all Islamic dinar came purely , also with dirham with keeping sassanian dirham
