King Shashanka was the founder of the Gaud Kingdom; he was also the first to have its own political entity over Bengal. He ruled during 7th Century CE. He issued a gold dinar which depicts Lord Shiva seated on the bull holding trident in his hand and an inscription in Brahmi ‘Shri Ja’, all within a dotted circle.
