This large silver drachm dates from the reign of of King Peroz I, King of the Sassanian Empire from 457-484 AD. This vast Empire encompassed modern-day Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Armenia, as well as portions of Syria and Turkey. Although it is more than 1525 years old, the coin is in superb extremely fine condition.  

The design on the front features a stylized bust of the king, while the back design features the classic Sassanian image of two attendants flanking a fire alter.

King Peroz I was one of the most prominent Sassanian emperors, and was involved in major military campaigns where he mobilized as many as 100,000 soldiers. Many of the coins issued as this time would have been used to pay the army.
