|One of the important features of the Hoysala inscriptions from eleventh to fourteenth century is the presence of a frequent references to monetary transaction as well as land grants. On average at least one fourth of the Hoysala inscriptions refers to monetary transaction while at least over sixty percent of epigraphs refers to land grant. While doing so the inscriptions of the former category mention the names of the coins that were in vogue and occasionally the relative value of the coins that were in a circulation. This helps us in understanding the coinage and the currency system. The Hoysala inscriptions mention the names of the following coins that were in circulation during the period. They are gadyana, varaha, nishka, hon or pon, pana, haga, visa, bele and kani each one of them may be examined in detail as found in the inscriptions.
