Jan's note on Fb:

"Excellent specimen Mitresh, I compared your specimen with a similar mohur sold some years ago by Baldwin's Auctions Ltd, Auctions 62-63, Auction date: 29 September 2009, Lot number: 1664.
 Akbar, Gold Mohur, AH 989, Ahmadabad (KM 108.2, not 20 as on slab). In NGC holder graded AU55.
 Estimate: £600-800; Price realized: 1,300 GBP (approx. 2,065 USD as of the auction date). Comparing these two pieces I must come to the conclusion that the one auctioned by Baldwin's in 2009 is rather suspicious and may be a counterfeit. I would invite other people their opinion. For better comparison, the coin is also listed on ZENO #81313."

My Mohur of the same type, which I purchased years ago for Rs. 22500 (Approx USD 330).

I am sorry for the image quality, as the mohur is not in my hand presently, and the image is taken from my computer records.
