Muhammad Kam Bakhash was the youngest son of Emperor Aurangzeb. He reigned as the emperor for a very short period from 1107 CE till 1708 CE. As he has ruled for a very short period of time, coins minted by him are extremely rare.

Kam Bakhsh had assumed the throne at Bijapur and struck coins in his own name, and declared himself as Padshah Kam Bakhsh-i-Dinpanah (Emperor Kam Bakhsh, Protector of Faith).

This copper paisa was issued by him from the mint Dar-ul-Zafar Bijapur. The weight of this coin is around 13.6 grams. The obverse side of this coin is inscribed with the name and title of the King Kam Bakhsh. The reverse of the coin is inscribed with the mint name ‘Dar-ul-Zafar Bijapur’.
