India 1/4, 1/2, and 1 Rupee 1950 to 1956
Don't we wish, Dayan, that these coins were made of silver. Instead, they are made of nickel, a non-precious metal.
Modern coins made of non-precious metal are worth face value, nothing more. The one in our picture is almost uncirculated, so a collector might pay a few US dollars to add it to his or her collection.
