The Past

2,000 - 200 years ago
Safavids
















This powerful Persian dynasty came to prominence in Iran around 1500 and lasted until 1723. In spite of perennial conflict between Safavid Iran and Oman, Safavid coins circulated throughout the region as can be seen from a hoard discovered at Mirbah, in Fujairah, in 1992. The hoard contained some 381 copper coins dating to the late Safavid period, c. 1668-1722. These coins can be seen in the Fujairah Museum and are the most tangible evidence in the Emirates of contact with Iran in a troubled period of Gulf history. We know that the troops of the Persian ruler Nadir Shah occupied Julfar and Khor Fakkan in 1736 and the Safavid coins of Fujairah may well have been brought by his troops. Safavid-era coins have also been found at Khashm Nadir in Ras al-Khaimah.
