  • Rs. 1,800.00


5 Kori silver coin of the Indian Princely State of Kutch, in the name of Khengarji and George V, in uncirculated condition. These coins were minted from 1910-1927 AD, before production moved on to the New Bhuj Mint, from 1928 onward. 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 V, his title and the date as per the Christian calendar. All of these are in Urdu. Compared to later 5 Kori coins, the lettering here is somewhat crude.
