The Qajar Period & Silver Coin Fiasco

The late Qajar years were beset by a sharp depreciation of the country's currency, rising prices, and a wider and growing fiscal crisis of the state. The declining value of the qeraan resulted from several circumstances: an unfavorable balance of trade and the falling world price of silver, not to mention tampering with the silver content of coins by Haajj Mohaammad-Haasan Am^n-al-Z~arb (q.v.), the farmer of the mint (Bakhash, p. 271). By 1914 the Persian currency was only one-fifth of what it had been worth in 1800 (Issawi, 1971, pp. 335, 343-45).

The fiscal crisis was brought about by an inadequate, ineffective, and inefficient fiscal administration; astronomical costs of maintaining state bureaucracies, the army, and the royal court; and outright corruption and decay deeply rooted in both the central and provincial governments and their various departments. The governmental response was a growing resort to foreign loans and concessions, combined with such domestic measures as the sale of crown lands and of provincial government offices, as well as the farming out of important state departments. The external measures accentuated the government's problems in the longer term and proved unpopular with the public, while internal measures exacerbated the situation by increasing the number of independent decision-making domains and, via greater insecurity of office, increasing tax pressure on peasants (Bakhash, p. 264).
