« on: July 28, 2019, 10:38:14 AM »
Hi,
I was searching this type of coin for sometime and finally got one in the coin exhibition in Kolkata.
Obv: Goddess Lakshmi standing in the centre with two elephants standing on their respective lotuses are placed on her either side are anointing her with sacred water,
Rev: Wheel with arrows shooting out from all the orbs  over fish tank
Wt: 1.46 gm
Size: 10.3 x 10.1 mm
Ref: Piper AICR 575
Piper mentions , ICS Newsletter No 32, p3 ("The coins were found fronm the river banks of Dham near Paunar in Vidarbha" . The type was found together with a bull/abhiseka Lakshmi type inscribed in name of Rano Sacabhada)
I loved the gorgeous wheel on reverse.
Thanks,
Saikat

Great find, congratulations !
Love that the elephants with their raised trunks can still clearly be seen to the left and right of the deity.
