India 1/4, 1/2, and 1 Rupee 1946 and 1947

That tiger looks like he means business! The British had pulled out of India by 1948. Two years before they did, they minted these rupee denominations in nickel. They are nice looking coins, but not very valuable.

Catalog values for these coins are listed below:

1/4 RUPEE:
