India 1862(c) 1/4 rupee



This denomination, the second smallest of the silver issues, was struck for India at the Calcutta, Bombay and Madras mints in 1862 and 1874-76. As the 1862 is the most frequently seen, it seems logical to suppose it was struck with a frozen date 1862-73. The issues of the various mints, which did not use mintmarks, vary slightly in diameter. We have attributed this to Calcutta merely because it is the most common.

Recorded mintage: 19,412,000 (Calcutta), 11,390,000 (Bombay), 5,049,000 (Madras).

Specification: 2.92 g, .917 fine silver, .086 troy oz ASW, 19.3-20 mm diameter.

Catalog reference: KM 470.
