The name of Gadhaiya (Gadhiya) paisa is attributed to the coins of indo-sassanian dynasties and their successors.
The value was equivalent to 1 drachm. Made in Chaulukyas territory from 543 to 753 AD these coins were still produced in the same territory under others dynastys like Gujrat, Malwa, Kandesh, Bahmanis, Salankis, Paramara and Yadavas.
Inscribed Gadhiya Paisas are found in Malwa Region and are believed to have issues for temple offerings. Please Refer to P.C. Roy's "Coins of Northen India" Book Page 142 for more details.
