India, East India Co. Treasure XX Cash
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 Arabic.
The XX coins are in general Fine condition and are illustrated here. The coins have seen some edge damage due to their being buried for almost 200. 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...
