Narwar is now a town in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh in Central India. Gwalior is to the north, Sagar is to the south. After the fragmenting of the Kushan Empire the Naga Dynasty occupied the region.

The earliest ancient Indian coins were the “bent bar” punchmarked silvers of the Achaemenid Persians occupying Gandhara in northwest Pakistan. By the 3rd century BC coins were in general use in most of India and Ceylon, and in subsequent centuries struck round coins in gold, silver, and copper came into use throughout the subcontinent and beyond to Southeast Asia and Pacific islands to Java and beyond.
