These 10 and 20 cash coins were struck for the East India Company in Birmingham in 1808. Unfortunately the coins never made it to India; the ship carrying them sunk on the Goodwin Sands and lay undiscovered for almost 200 years.
The coins struck were the 10 and the 20 Cash coins. Both denominations are copper and have the arms of the East India Company supported by two lions on one side. The other side has the denomination XX (20) Cash or X (10) Cash and the inscription is in the Arabic. Here we present the X coins, which are in Very Fine, but have seen some edge damage due to their being buried for almost 200 years.
Own a piece of British / Indian Treasure coin for far less than you might expect to pay.
These are a wonderful conversation piece as well as true treasure coins. Each coin comes with a certificate of authenticity...
India George V 1/12 Anna, 1928. If India goes the way of China, shortly we will be unable to legally export her early coins. In fact, nothing over 100 years old can be taken out of the country today.
I have one of the smallest bronze coins struck in India on offer this issue. The 1/12th Anna of King George V dated 1928. They are in Uncirculated condition with a rather regal portrait of the King and in this portrait he is wearing his crown.
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
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.
