World record price paid for Islamic gold coin...<br />
<br />
Sold today for £3.72 million - The world’s rarest and most valuable Islamic gold coins.<br />
<br />
This Umayyad solid gold dinar date's from 105h (723AD) and importantly is inscribed from the ‘Mine of the Commander of the Faithful’.<br />
<br />
The Umayyad's ruled the early Islamic world from their capital in Damascus at the heart of modern war torn Syria.<br />
<br />
Unlike the Christian coinage, on Moslem currency all images were forbidden and so both sides are covered by arabic text.<br />

Astonished Auctioneers Morton&Eden sold the super rare coin in London today.
