Summary/Abstract: Four types of Muhammad bin Timur’s dangs with common reverse legend, containing (according to the interpretation of the author) name of Mahmud bin Küchük Muhammad and his title beklerbek, are published and analyzed. The article includes images of coins, reconstructions and interpretations of their legends. It was ascertained that on Küchük Muhammad’s coins his name could be transmitted as Muhammad bin Timur or simply as Muhammad. Published dangs suggest that Mahmud, the son of Küchük Muhammad, during some time held the post of beklerbek under his father and at this time coins were minted with the name and title of Mahmud bin Muhammad as beklerbek on their reverses instead of the mint name. These coins were intended to inform people about the heir to the throne.
