Imitation 19 san sikka rupee
« on: December 03, 2017, 12:28:47 AM »
I acquired this piece at our local coin fair last Sunday, and it was very quickly obvious that the obverse legend and the mintname were wrong.

I assume it is one of the type issued by jewellers with their name and address replacing the Mughal emperors name and titles, and the mint, though it isn't any of the few examples given in Pridmore.

Can anyone please give me a translation of the inscriptions?

Thank you

Alan

I have the exact same type, it translates as:

Obv: zewar jamil/sikkah/fateh din registry/shudah/ hindustan (Beautifull ornament coin, purified by Fateh Din, registered in Hindustan).

Rev: mu'affiq murshidabad (in the style of Murshidabad)
