Highlight: Hogan Bengal is a general term used to list the copper coins of British- controlled Northwest India. Coins listed in Craig's "Coins of the World" under this heading were struck in several mints far from Bengal. Banaras and Farrukhabad were districts in the United Provinces, the latter being a few hundred r^es from Delhi. The last series of copper coins under this headrang were struck in even farther places, as we shall see. DENOMINATIONS : Craig uses a different system of denominations than are actually on some of the early coins. A more useful system for those collectors that do not have a set of scales on hand would be that used by W. H. Valentine in his "Copper Coins of India, Part I". The actual comparison of the two systems would be: Craig’s Pie = Valentine’s 1/2 Pai (als# calledRead more

Highlight: India: Coins of Marathas Nupam Mahajan The Marathas were the single most formidable Hindu power which made a successful attempt for supremacy of the whole Indian subcontinent on decline of Mughals in the seventeenth century. The origin of Marathas can be traced back to the reign of Emperor Ashok who ruled in 2nd century BC. From deciphered rock edicts we know that he sent his missionaries to the Rashtrikas, the dwellers of Dandaka forest. These fierce independent minded people called themselves Maha-rashtrikas (Maha means great). In the course of time the country they occupied came to be know as Maharashtra (Maha means great, rashtra means country) and its people called themselves Marathas/Maharashtrians. It's not strictly correct to categorize the following dynasties into Marathas and somRead more

Guiness Book of World Records states, on page 366 : "Smallest. The smallest coins in the world were the gold 'pinhead' coins used in Colpata, southern India, in c. 1800, which weighed as little as one grain, or 480 to the troy ounce."

Highlight: Although the British India coins were accepted in theory but the Governments various ordinances could not preclude the powerful rulers from issuing coins within their domain. Only a few States like Dhar, Dewas (both branches) and Sailana agreed to get coins struck in the name of the British Monarch and in the case of Bikaner and Alwar the Imperial rupee was introduced during the minority of the respective rulers by the order of the British Political Agent. 339Read more

Highlight: Lunawada also issued its own currency which was a legal tender along with the British India coins. The coins are mostly available in rather imperfect square or oblong shapes. They bear on the obverse side the imprint of a lion with a straight sword below it, with the name of the State (Lunawada) in Gujarati script. On the reverse side, the name of the ruler, Maharana Wakhat Singhji, is written in Gujarati or simply as (M.W.S.) the initials of the Maharana. The Lion and the sword motif has a tale of trial and strength behind it. The local people fondly tell you that Maharana Wakhat Singhji was a strong man. He demonstrated his physical strength by publicly fighting a lion on festive days and killing it by tearing apart its jaws with his bare hands. Thus the lion and the sword depict thisRead more

Highlight: but ever since Swami Dayatmananda told me that in India coins could be copied as amulets simply because they were old, I have begun to look at it as potentially more interesting than just a poor dud. Much less problematical is the piece shown in Fig. 5 (actual size), which is a copy in silver of a silver tetradrachm of King Lykkeios of Paeonia (8). This again appears not to be a cast copy of a genuine coin, as an examination of the obverse bust shows, but more than this, its integral mount means that it was made to be worn, and not to grace the cabinet of some unfortunate coin collector. But is it amuletic or just jewellery? We can all too easily imagine the symbol of Hercules wrestling with a lion as an amuletic symbol of strength, but really, is this piece any more amuletic than the otheRead more
Highlight: but there are always quite a number in any unpicked lot of South India coins. To get a set of these is quite challenging. At least four other types are known - a deer, an elephant, a lion left foot raised, and a battle axe. Some reverses have legends rather than the lattice work. Although Haidar ruled 1761-82, he issued only a large copper paisa (A.H. 1195-96) and a number of small gold coins called fanams and pagodas. Many forgeries (or jeweller issues) of the former exist. Haidar was reasonably Haidar Ali Paisa (C50) tolerant of his Hindu subjects, and so almost certainly either continued some of the types of his predecessors, or was content with using other gold and copper currencies which circulated in the state. This was a very common practice in the Indian Native States, and one whicRead more
Highlight: South India, coins were struck with a mystery word liayili appearing in the legends in both Kannada and English. No one knows for sure what meaning the word was Intended to convey. It appears on the silver fanam as ’H-kiyili hana‘' and similarly on the smaller fractional denominations (1/8 and 1/16) of the silver rupee. On the copper coins it appears as "Mayili kasu" in Kannada and as MILAY CASH or more often as MEILEE CASH in English. (For an example, see the 20 Cash piece, Craig //193). In Kannada, mayiZi can mean thin, or dirty, or small-pox, but none of these meanings applies to the coins. The most reasonable speculation by the experts is that Mayisur (Mysore) was contracted to Mayi-, and the locative suffix li added, to mean struck "in Mysore". But this is just speculation. 141Read more
