The Jital denomination
The Jital was a copper or billon coin first struck in the Delhi Sultanate by Iltutmish. It contained 3.6 grains of silver, and replaced the dihliwal which had higher silver content - and so the introduction effectively constituted a devaluation of the monetary system.

The Jital originally derived from the Bull and horseman coins of the Shahi of Kabul. These were silver, with a weight standard of around 3.2 grams.
