Also called Khodabandi. A Persian silver coin of the Sufi or Safi dynasty. Its value was one half Abbasi or two Shahis. It is also known as the Sad-Dinar.

At Bassorah, in Asia-Minor, a money of account formerly prevailed based on the Persian system, as follows:

1 Toman = 100 Mahmudi or Mamudis. = 1,000 Danims or Danimes = 10, 000 Flusch.

According to Noback (p. 652), the Mahmudi was also a former copper coin of Maskat, and the twentieth part of the Piastre or Spanish Dollar. It was subdivided into twenty Gass or Goz.
