« on: October 18, 2021, 06:38:47 PM »
Hello everyone,
I received some medieval Indian coins a while back. I've got no clue as to where they're from. I would really appreciate any help you all can provide. I have uploaded 1 coin per post and numbered them all as well with measurements.
Thank you and have a good one :))

Here's coin#2

Diameter: 17 mm
Weight: 7.8 g
Thickness: 4 mm

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".
