Probably one of the later copies. There is no proof but there exists a series of 17 to 18 g coins in name of Akbar. The weight suggests they were produced at a time when the coins of this weight were acceptable. It would have prevented the charge of counterfeiting and yet there was no loss of weight.

It is a matter of speculation. However, the late 17th / early 18th century could be the best bet.
