One of my coin collector guru in India owns a silver Rupee, from the Akbar's reign with an inscription of his victory over Chittor.

I believe such coins are hard to catch in the coin's world.

I don't have the pictures of this coin, but would like anyone to share their coin/collection pictures for the reference purpose.

A bloody affair, that siege was. I googled for that rupee without succes. As a consolation prize, the story is here.

Could not find one on ZENO. However, Copper coins are known and are quire rare.

The owner of this coin is a seller of Mughal and Delhi Sultans coins to the Museums in India.

I have seen several examples of Akbar's Chitor coins in copper but never heard of or seen any rupee. However, why would the rupee not exist if mohurs commemorating victory of Chitor were minted. An intriguing possibility.
