  • Rs. 1,900.00

High grade Silver 5 Kori coin of the Princely State of Kutch, minted in the name of Khengarji and George VI. These were the last coins to be minted in the name of Khengarji, who ruled the princely state of Kutch from 1866-1941 AD. 

These coins follow the same basic design that was used in the first 5 Kori coins of Kutch, with the name of the ruler of Kutch on the obverse, together with the date (Vikram Samvat) and the three symbols of Kutch - the trishul (trident), crescent and katar (dagger). The crescent on the front is an open circle, as opposed to the earlier design, which was a closed circle. This side uses the Devnagari script. The reverse carries the name of Emperor George VI, his title and the date as per the Christian calendar. All of these are in Urdu.
