Bearing signs of the zodiac, the coins conceived of and issued by Emperor Jahangir were a development of earlier Mughal coinage, which included religious calligraphic inscriptions and minting dates. The sign of Pisces corresponds to the month in which this coin was issued, while a couplet on the reverse provides additional information about the reign and year.
