1 Rupee silver coin, George VI
1 Rupee, half silver coins of George VI, from 1940-45 (except 1943). The original weight of these coins was 11.66 grams- the actual weight may vary slightly. These coins were minted from 1940 onward, when the silver content of the British Indian rupee was cut from 91.7% to 50% - devaluation caused by the World War II, and were minted up to 1945 - when silver was entirely replaced by nickel. Over this 5 year period, small variations were introduced to the design as security features.
The original features of the coins are all intact, with original luster visible on some of them.
Coins are part of a lot, condition may vary from one coin to another. Price is per coin.
