This coin was minted during the rule of Vasudeva II, who was the Kushan King from AD 275 - 310. The obverse side depicts King Vasudeva II, standing left with a nimbate crown. He is sacrificing over an alter while holding a scepter and to the left is a trident. The reverse side shows the goddess Ardoxsho seated on a throne, while holding filleted investiture garland and cradling a cornucopia. In ancient Kushan religion, Ardoxsho was the goddess of abundance and royal fortune.
The Kushan Empire was founded in South Asia in the early 1st century AD. The main religion in the Empire was Buddhism. During the next 2 centuries, the Kushans expanded across the northern parts of the Indian subcontinent. They captured territories as far as the Tarim Basin of modern-day Xinjiang, China. While much philosophy, art, and science was created within its borders, the record of the Kushan Empire's history today comes mainly from their coins and also inscriptions in other languages, particularly Chinese. The gold dinar was the main coin issued by the Kushan Empire during its existence from AD 30 - 375. There were several regional mints and the evidence from coins suggests that much of the empire was semi-independent.
