The Sayyid Dynasty was the fourth of five dynasties that ruled over the Delhi Sultanate. They succeeded the Tughlaqs and ruled Delhi from 1414 CE to 1451 CE when Bahlul Khan Lodi took over the Sultanate and established the Lodi Dynasty. As Khizr Khan never assumed full independent charge, as a mark of recognition of suzerainty of Mongols, Khutba was read in the name of Mongol Ruler Shah Rukh with an innovation of adding Khizr's name to it. No coins were issued by Khizr Khan in his name. Popular & prevalent coins in the name of previous Tughlaq rulers continued to be issued on coins bearing his date. Silver, billion and copper coins in the name of previous Tughlaq rulers bearing his reign date are also known.
