"The importance of the Kushana empire in the history of the orient is well-known. The gold and copper coins of the imperial Kushanas form one of the most varied and interesting series of oriental coinage. It is striking to note that though we know of a very large number of gold and copper coins of the Kushanas, silver pieces attributable to them are negligible in number. This problem merits investigation, since silver is known to have been one of the most widely used metals for minting coins in ancient period. The present monograph aims at that investigation. In fact, the first edition of this book was the first ever attempt at a comprehensive discussion on Kushana silver coinage.

The first edition of the present monograph drew attention of the academic world to a number of unnoticed or little noticed facts. The first edition was very favourably reviewed in several journals in India and abroad. The academic world now considers the monograph as a significant addition to the Indian numismatic literature
