Introducing the Great Cities Collection: Baghdad (Black Box), a tribute to the illustrious history and cultural significance of one of the world's most iconic cities. Step back in time to the year 762, when Al-Mansur, the visionary founder of the Abbasid Caliphate, laid the foundations of the legendary 'Round City' of Madinat al-Salam on the banks of the Tigris River.

Nestled amidst the remnants of ancient Babylon and the former Persian capital of Ctesiphon, Baghdad flourished into a bustling metropolis, earning its place as the largest city in the world during the Islamic Golden Age. At its zenith, Baghdad boasted a population exceeding one million, earning renown as the 'Center of Learning' that attracted scholars, traders, and travelers from far and wide.

However, the city's glory was not without adversity. In 1258, Baghdad suffered devastation at the hands of the Mongol Invasion, leaving much of the ancient city in ruins. Yet, its legacy endured, leaving an indelible mark on history.

Capturing the essence of this storied past, the silver dirham struck by Al-Mansur himself (754-775) serves as a poignant reminder of Baghdad's golden age. Encased in a sleek black box, this exquisite piece invites you to cherish the timeless allure of a city that has left an indelible imprint on the tapestry of human civilization.
