India, 2 Annas 1917

George V, KM515, Uncirculated

India, 9 Coin Type Set. Uncirculated.

India 9 Coin Type Set. Uncirculated. It was fantastic when a dealer offered us a set of nine different denominations going back to 1971 (46 years) and the newest coin is 2002 (15 years old). All the coins are in Uncirculated condition and they are almost impossible to find elsewhere, even in India itself. You get the 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 20, 25 and 50 Paise and the 1 Rupee. Remember the Indian Rupee is about 87 to the Pound. These are fantastic coins several of them are unusual shapes and once these are gone, I don’t know where I will be able to find any more. All coins are legal tender, all coins are Uncirculated and all the coins cost more to make than their face value!

India, Ancient India Elephant

We were offered a group of ancient Indian copper coins recently; they were issued between 59- 131 AD. They have an elephant on one side and some circles on the other side. They were very crudely struck; after all they were a very low denomination at the time. They are from Satavahanas, Pulomavi in India. We went through 2,000 coins in the hoard and picked out the best ones available. We went for the best elephants that we could find, in fact we bought only 10% of the hoard, and these were the only ones that we thought were of sufficient quality for our customers. A very old coin but it won’t cost you the earth. As the elephant is now endangered, we think this ancient coin is very appropriate.

India, 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.

India, Denomination Set of 10 Coins

You get the 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 20, 25 and 50 Paise coins plus the 1 and 2 Rupees. These are dated between 1971and 2002 and in Uncirculated condition.

India, East India Co. 1/2 Pice 1853
