In the context of the conference series “El milenio del Reino de Granada a debate” (The millenium of the Kingdom of Granada debated), academic Mª Jesús Viguera Molins from the Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the Universidad Complutense presented a collection of coins from Al Andalus made in Granada mints from the 11th century on. In the conference “La época nazarí: Comentarios sobre el Milenio de Granada” (The Nasrid Period: Commenting on the Millenium of Granada), given by professor Viguera Molins, a variety of coins made in Granada mints from the 11th century on were presented. The most “recent” are from the end of the 15th century, coined in the time of Boabdil.
Below we’ll show images of a full collection of coins from Al Andalus: Zirid, Almohad, Almoravid and Nasrid, all coined and minted in Granada.
