Lot of 15 Islamic Silver Coins, c. 1100 - 1400 A.D.

Includes nine sun and lion types. The source and meaning of this sun and lion design is uncertain but there is a popular (although unlikely) explanation. The sultan was madly in love with his beautiful Georgian wife and wanted to put her portrait on his coins. His advisors disapproved, however, so he put his wife's horoscope on his coins instead - the Sun in Leo.
