1/2 Rupee, Alamgir II, Bombay Presidency
Silver Half Rupee minted by the Bombay Presidency (East India Company) in the name of Mughal Emperor Alamgir II. These coins were minted from 1756-1759 - over 250 years old! In 1717, the East India Company obtained the right to strike coins in the island of Bombay - coins struck in the name of Mughal emperors continued till 1835 - by which time the EIC was the de-facto ruler of India and started issuing uniform coins across the country. As this is a Mughal rather than a British coin, the script is Persian, not English.
