IRAN on coins

It is believed that Nadir shah king of Iran from 1736 to 1747 was the first ruler who engraved world IRAN on his coins after Muslim conquests.
Ardashir the first (211/2–224) founder of Sasanian empire engraved word IRAN on his coins for the first time in Iran’s history.

After falling Sasanian dynasty by Muslims in 651 AD until the day Nadir shah took the throne we do not see such world in any form of Iranian coinge.
Therefore, Nader can be considered a nationalist king who extended the borders of Iran from Baghdad to India and called himself the Shah of Iran.
