Very cute Akbar coin_details?
« on: March 19, 2013, 04:50:36 PM »
Here is a very cute coin of Akbar. It measures 1.5 x 1.3 cms and weighs 6.7gms. On its obv. "tanka Akbar shahi" is clear. The rest is mystery to me. On the other side, "Ilahi Aban" is legible. Ilahi year "4x" is somewhat faintly visible. Legend "Jala" also can be understood. The rest of rev. also is mystery. Is it mint name or something else? Experts please help.

This coin underwent some discussions. It is a one eight tanka (Hastam hissa tanka Akbar shahi) issued from Burhanpur.
