Description: A COLLECTION FORMED BY PAUL STEVENS, SULTANATES Ghiyath al-Din Tughluq, Gold Tanka, Mulk-i-Tilang, AH 725, titles, rev titles and single circular border, 11.03g (G&G D303). Struck on a compact flan, better than usual for this mint, extremely fine and rare, a lovely specimen. Telangana, currently a part of Andhra Pradesh, but soon to become a separate state, was ruled by the Kakatiyas at the start of the 13th Century AD from their capital, Warangal. In 1305, the army of 'Ala al-Din Muhammad Khalji, under Malik Kafur, conducted a successful campaign to Warangal and returned with masses of treasure "too heavy for a thousand camels to bear". During the reign of the next Dehli Sultan, Qutb al-Din Mubarak, an army under Khusru Khan again invaded Telangana and returned to Dehli with another large amount of booty. During this period, Telangana remained in the hands of the Kakatiyas but in the reign of Ghiyath al-Din Tughluq, Warangal was captured, possibly along with other parts of Telangana. The name of the capital was changed to Sultanpur and it must have remained as part of the Dehli Sultanate until at least the year AH 732 (AD 1331/2). Gold and silver Tankas in the name of Ghiyath al-Din Tughluq were struck with the mintname Mulk-i Tilang in years 724 and 725. These have a different legend from those struck at other mints during his reign. In the reign of his successor, Muhammad bin Tughluq, there is an initial Tanka issue with mint name Mulk-i Tilang, and then various issues of gold coin with the mint name Sultanpur.

Tughluq left his son Jauna to rule the Sultanate while he invaded Bengal and gave instructions for him to occupy himself by building a wooden palace in his honour. However, on his return, its roof fell in fatally injuring the Sultan. It is suspected that this was no accident, that Jauna had tampered with the building and murdered his father in this elaborate manner in order to gain the throne.
