India Religious Token, Rupee of Akbar
India Religious Token, Rupee of Akbar

Gaurav sent us this picture of his neat coin. It is an Islamic Temple Token from India. With the help of the experts at World of Coins [Press Here], it turns out to be a copy of a square rupee of Akbar. According to Numista, the date of manufacture is 1914.

Since it is a recent issue as a token, not a coin, value is low:

worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $6
fully uncirculated: $10

CoinQuest thanks Gaurav for his interesting inquiry and use of his coin photos, as well as the World of Coin contributors.

Coin: 13696 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
