Title: ram coin
Post by: KPC on November 01, 2011, 06:27:31 AM
I saw this coin at a local jeweller, after a lot of convincing he allowed me to take some pics of the coin.
It appears to be a temple token or a medal, but thats just a guess. on one side you can read the words ram something (cant figure it out).
please assist if you have any insights!!!!!

In the second scan, it is clearly inscribed (In Hindi): Ram Sita

I can also see Hanuman in first scan. :D

Looks like a temple token I have seen on this site but I don't recall where.
