Historic Perspective: The Muslim Arabs utilized current gold and silver coinage in lands they dominated. At that time the nascent Islamic country did not have a financial system and did not strike neither gold nor silver coins, rather the dominating Arabs utilized the Byzantine financial system currently existing in Egypt for the majority of the gold coins and the Sassanian financial system currently existing in Iran for the majority of silver coins with small adjustments. In 77 AH (699 ADVERTISEMENT) Abd al-Malik Ibn Marwan the Umayyad caliph set up a financial system and started striking the very first Islamic coins consisting of the gold Dinar. The dinar weighed 4.25 grams, or one mithqal, of the greatest pureness gold possible. At the time the center of power and the primary gold coin mint lay in Dimishq (present day Damascus in Syria). On the other hand, silver coins, or dirhams were struck throughout the empire in different mints.
