20 Dec 2021  Mon

Yadava of Devagiri was an Indian dynasty that ruled the region of Maharashtra, North Karnataka, and Madhya Pradesh between 850 CE and 1334 CE. They were the feudatories of the Western Chalukyas and often claimed as their descent from the Yadavas of Dwarka, Lord Krishna’s clan. Around the middle of the 12th century, as the Chalukya power waned, the Yadava king Bhillama V declared independence.

This gold Gadayana was issued by King Singhana III, the last ruler of the Yadava dynasty. The weight of this coin is around 3.81g, and he issued this coin with his wife Queen Kamwaladevi. The obverse side of this coin depicts a Royal emblem composed of ornate Shankha and Chakra symbols flanking a sword. The reverse side of this coin is inscribed with the Devanagari legend in three lines ShriSingha/naKamwa/la Devi.

This gold Gadayana is listed for an estimate price of INR 1,20,000 in the upcoming auction of Classical Numismatic Gallery that will be held in Kolkata on 26th December 2021.
