The monetary history of a country provides important insights into its economic development, as well as its political and social history. This book is the first detailed study of Iranas monetary history from the advent of the Safavid dynasty in 1501 to the end of Qajar rule in 1925. Using an array of previously unpublished sources in ten languages, the authors consider the specific monetary conditions in Iranas modern history, covering the use of ready money and its circulation, the changing conditions of the countryas mints and the role of the state in managing money. Throughout the book, the authors also consider the larger regional and global economic context within which the Iranian economy operated.
