Set of 3 coins - 1/2 rupia, 1/4 rupia, 1 tanga, 1952

  • Rs. 900.00


Set of 3 coins: 1/2 rupia (copper nickel), 1/4 rupia (copper nickel) and 1 tanga (bronze) of Portuguese-India (Goa) minted in 1952. This was the first time that none of the coins (including the rupia) had no silver.  This was also the last issue of rupia - next coins issued in Goa were Escudos. The coins are similar in design to their predecessors - with tiny towers on a divided shield and the words 'Estado da India'. 

The three coins are hard to find as a set. Read more about them here, here and here
