India (British) Pie  1830 to 1833
India (British) Pie 1830 to 1833

The official monetary denominations of British colonial India were:

3 Pies = 1 Pice = 1 Paisa
4 Pice = 1 Anna
16 Annas = 1 Rupee
15 Rupees = 1 Mohur

so one pie is one-12th anna and one-192nd of a rupee.

Just about all of the pies you see are worn and very dark. Finding one in good shape is a challenge. Typical catalog values run like this:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $2
well preserved: $8
fully uncirculated: $35

Use our Important Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.

Coins with dates 1830 and 1831 are much more rare than coins dated 1833.

Coin: 10369 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
