The Jai Hind Kori – tezbid

The Jai Hind Kori

Posted by Amit Bhandari on

The Jai Hind kori was a 1 kori silver coin issued by the Princely State of Kutch in 1947 (Vikram Samvat 1947) on India’s independence, with the words ‘Jai Hind’ in Devnagri on the reverse. This was issued in the name of Madansinhji, the ruler of Kutch at the time.

This coin makes a break from earlier coins of Kutch in two ways. First, the previous coins of Kutch (from 1857-1947) carried the name of the British ruler on the reverse (Victoria, Edward VII, George V, Edward VIII and George VI). This coins says ‘Jai Hind’ instead – signifying the shift of sovereignty. Second, the reverse of coin used Urdu script, in the Jai-Hind Kori, ‘Jai-Hind’ is written in Devnagari script.

Other than that, this coin follows the pattern of other 1 Kori coins in weight, size and design.
