found this coin from Portuguese India amongst a mixture of others, I recall having one similar but with a male portrait somewhere but can't find it as yet.

A nice coin. These Goa Rupias of early 1800's are extremely difficult to find these days.

Since 1 year I joined WOC & started checking domestic auctions ,I didn't find such rupias of Goa offered by any of the  auction houses it seldom appear now a days.

Vic , you have treasure of coins in your colection  some of it are well presevered & well struck . These specimens are   not all  easy to get if  even some one want to pay high premium.

Cheers ;D

I wonder why they are now so scarce ?  I still can't find the one with a male head, maybe it was sold off long ago  :'(

If they are collected a lot , they must be collected in India.
In Portugal they are ( i'll be carefull ) not as popular as 10/20 years ago.

Even with lower demand in Portugal, I can only hope I could afford a jewel like the one above...

Memories are funny. The good news gets remembered, the bad news forgotten. Probably healthy. It happens even to national memories...
