Indo-Sassanian Gadhiya paisa coins are degenerates of Sassanian silver coins which circulated in Afghanistan and India from the 8th to 11th centuries. These coins are referred as Indo-Sassanian for combining Indian characters with the Sassanian types. Some derive the word Gadhiya from the Ghardabhiya dynasty-which is an Indo-Sassanian family of that name, subsequent to the year 420 A.D. The design of the coin was based on the Sassanian fire altar that was produced about 300 years earlier (Chavda dynasty).
Throughout Sassanid history a freestanding fire-altar was given a prominent place on coinage.
