2 Silver Rupee coins of Aurangzeb in near UNC condition
« on: June 19, 2013, 11:40:27 AM »
Just to remove the complaint of Abhinumis (less activity on Mughal Board), I am posting Silver Rupee coins of Aurangzeb in About UNC Condition.

The first coin is from Ujjain Mint (KM # 300.91), while the second one is from Burhanpur (KM # 300.24).

Even after almost 300 years, the original mint luster can still be seen and felt on the coins.

Thanks for showing, Abhay. These are prize pieces. Carefully struck, with just enough force, the dies well placed on well-formed flans and carefully preserved. Maybe someone kept them as a souvenir of a long past occasion...

Thanks Abhishek! Although it is my first post to the Mughal board, I know next to nothing about Mughal coins  :(  So unfortunately I'll no be able to contribute anything meaningful :-X

Very impressive superb coins.

I'm wondering if it would have been in gold instead of silver.

Royal look nazarana rupees with complete legends.

Cheers ;D
