1 Rupee, East India Company, 1840 CL
Silver Rupee minted in the name of Queen Victoria by the East India Company with the date 1840. These coins were minted in Calcutta, Bombay and Madras mints. This design is known as Continuous Legend - as the words 'Queen Victoria' come in a single line of text. The obverse has the young head of Queen Victoria, while the reverse features the words 'One Rupee' inside a wreath. These are high grade coins - note the hair on Victoria's head - a fine feature which is the first to get rubbed off, is intact on most of the coins.
Compared to other coins of British India, these are relatively rare as they are much older.
