This book is the second volume of an illustrated price guide to Islamic coins; the first volume was published in 2015.  The Islamic market has long been hampered by two things: the lack of reliable information regarding values due to the historic volatility of auction prices for Islamic coins, and the lack of general reference works with illustrations.  This book is an attempt to remedy both these problems.  It is intended as an introductory guide, aimed at the general collector; suggestions for further reading are given throughout the book. 
This second volume covers the coinage of the entire Islamic world from North Africa to Southeast Asia, from the 10th century AH (16th century AD) to the 13th century AH (19th century AD).  Prices are given for each type in US dollars.  There are appendices covering mints and rulers’ names, both with Arabic transcriptions.  The prices are intended to be retail values - i.e. what a collector would expect to pay to buy the coin from a dealer or at auction (including buyer’s premium) - and are based on both auction prices and dealers’ asking prices.
