*NAWANAGAR STATE – SREE JAAM – ONE KORI – RARE SILVER COIN#C-42
WEIGHT – 4.76 GRAM
DIAMETER – 16 MM
CONDITION – SILVER

Summary:
1 Kori coin issued in the Nawanagar State, India
Hammered silver coinage struck at an uncertain mint perhaps in the period 1812-1850 AD
Statement Of Significance:
The date on the obverse 78, for 978 AH (1570 AD) was frozen since the first production of this type. The attribution of any particular coin to the British control period is rejected in Krause, while including these coins in the 19th century catalogue it makes note “The former attribution of these coins to Ranmalji II (1820-1852 AD) is incorrect” (p.658) and leaves the dating open at circa 1570 – 1850.
