British Indian Silver Coins


India has a very good store of " Commonwealth" ( British time ) stamps and coins. Indian issued silver coins prices ( Sikka Chehrey Shahi - Coin With a Royal Face ) " are rising steadily. This trend can be analyzed from ebay.in auctions

With India becoming a global power there is a re rating of all collectible items ( including  coins ) connected with India .

Old timers remember when these British Indian silver coins were in circulation . There were particular names for some silver coins :-

MALKA GUTT WALI - Queen Victoria with Plaited ( Gutt ) Hair . This is the East India Company Issue ( all such Rupee .coins bear a single date .i.e. 1840 )

 Later Victoria coins (Post 1862 ) do not have the " Gutt "

RODDA- ( meaning Bald ) This refers to Edward VII ( whose head on the observe of the coin was without crown  )

DOPPAR ( meaning Half ) These refer to the Post 1940  George VI silver coins when because of World War II  high cost silver content in coins was HALVED

Do you have any idea where I can get old coins in LUDHIANA. I always prefer the poor sellers who operate from footpath or small stalls.

We use a computerized process to create the coin mold, but the color fill process is actually done by hand! Time, and patience are key in getting into those small places.
