silver, 3x 9.2 gram.
Abdur Rahman Khan (Pashto: عبد رحمان خان) (between 1840 and 1844 – October 1, 1901) was Emir of Afghanistan from 1880 to 1901.
He was the third son of Mohammad Afzal Khan, and grandson of Dost Mohammad Khan. Abdur Rahman Khan re-established the writ of the Afghan government after the disarray that followed the second Anglo-Afghan war.
He became known as The Iron Emir because his government was a military despotism resting upon a well-appointed army administered through officials absolutely subservient to an inflexible will and controlled by a widespread system of espionage; and for his crushing of a number of rebellions by various tribes who were led by his relatives one of which resulted in the killing and displacement of 60% of the Hazara people's population.
