Is "hun" another name for this same coin?[edit]

The article Shivaji mentions a coin called "hun", so I made an article hun (coin), but midway through it seemed it's just a synonym for pagoda. Can someone take a squint and confirm, and if so can we add just a small mention of this alternate term to the article?

Following is my draft, and the sources may be useful:

The hun was a coin used in early South India,[when?] weighing 50-60 grains.[1]
The term may be "a Hindustani corruption of honnu, Kanarese for 'a half-pagoda'."[2]'
