The 1 dinar or masha coin is a circulation coin that was issued by the Paramara Rajputs of the Malwa region of India during the reign of Maharajah Udayaditya, which lasted from about 1060 or 1070 to about 1087. Such a coin had a value equivalent to 1 dinar prior to its eventual demonetization.

The coin is composed of gold and weighs approximately 4.05 grams. It is round in shape. Featured on the obverse is a facing, seated illustration of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, prosperity, and fortune in Hinduism. Such an image is also accompanied by various other decorative elements. Inscribed on the reverse is the Devanagari title of Udayaditya, "श्रीमद उदयदेवा" (Romanized: Śrīmada Udayadēvā), printed on three lines. The first line bears "श्रीमद उ" (Śrīmada U), the second "दयदे" (dayadē), and the last "वा" (). A beaded border is often present along portions of the rim on the reverse.
