Abstract Although the study of coins reveals many political and economic facts, along with religious beliefs throughout history in connection with the history of nations and communities, there is still need for comprehensive integrated study for all its artistic and archaeological aspects. This is due to the development of the writings, inscriptions, floral and architectural decorations, in addition to astronomical, animal and human engravings. In fact, the Islamic East has witnessed some main and other subsidiary mints for striking official coins, Dinars, along with the silver Dirhams which were widely minted due to the abundance of silver in the Islamic East territories. Therefore, the research is interested in the mints throughout the territories of the Islamic East during the period when the independence of such territories or their subordination to the Abbasid Caliphate was obvious. It can be said that the most important of such mints are Samarkand, Marw, Naisabour, Horah, Al-Shash and Hamdan. The research is also concerned with studying the stamping patterns in these territories, the process of striking metal beads, and its different stages, depending on the (original) stamping patterns sent to them from the mint of the Central Caliphate. Moreover, there is a reference to the workers in the mints from supervisors, decorators and artists. The researcher also publishes and studies models of the most important coins that belong to the mints of the Islamic East, comparing them to the pieces coming from the capital of the Caliphate, with an artistic study of inscriptions, floral and astronomical engravings, and sectarian symbols.
