This coin was issued by the Maukhari king Ishanavarman (c. sixth century CE). It shows a diademed bust on one side, with a crescent on the diadem, probably representing the king himself. The other side has a peacock with its head turned left and wings and tail spread out. The legend below mentions the name Ishanavarman.
