Billion Silver Tanka of Jaunpur

These billon or base metal silver coins were issued between 1458 and 1479. They were made for the independent kingdom in Northern India of Jaunpur Sutltanate. Today this area is known as Uttar Pradesh. It was ruled by Hussain Shah, the last ruler. During his reign he contributed to Hindustani classical music. His army was the biggest in India and he tried to conquer Delhi three times, but was defeated each time. In 1493 the Delhi sultanate re-conquered Jaunpur and Hussain fled to Bengal. They are listed as EWC 928. These 500 year old coins are called Tankas and are base silver or billon. They have inscriptions on both sides and have an interesting history. I think at just £18.00 they are both interesting and reasonably priced.

George VI 1/4 Anna 1940 Unc

Of the four Monarchs who ruled over India in the 20th Century, one of the hardest to find in nice copper or bronze coins is the last one, King George VI. Don’t forget he only came to the throne in 1937 and India became Independent in 1948. During that time there was a World War and people had something else to do than collect coins. We have a nice group of King George VI 1/4 Annas on offer. These are the largest of his bronze coins issued. The coins on offer also have the first head on them and this design was only issued for three years, those from 1940 are on offer. They are not easy to find and the coins on offer are in Uncirculated condition with original lustre. You have the crowned bust of the Monarch on one side and the denomination and date on the other side.
