« on: March 02, 2020, 04:09:04 PM »
Hi all,
Akbar rupee, mint Berar. Ilahi 50 aban month. Bird below the mint name. Nice decorated flan.
Ilahi 50 Aban is the last month and date combination of Akbar's reign. Akbar died on the intervening night of 3/4 th Aban ilahi 50.

I saw that bird earlier today.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

The bird is not what makes this coin special . It is among one of the features. The fact that Akbar died in 4th Aban ilahi50 would mean that this coin was minted for a very short period. I could not find another specimen online and I know of only one specimen in private collection similar to this one
