British Academy

This chapter examines the monetary history of the eastern region of Central Asia before AD 800. The findings reveal the use of Chinese and Chinese-style coins in the region; the use of Kushan, Byzantine, and Sasanian coins in particular locations at particular times; and the desire to create new local styles of coinage. The results also indicate that coins were not the only form of money.

Keywords:   monetary history, Central Asia, Chinese coins, Chinese-style coins, coinage, money
