5 Kori, Kutch, Vijayrajji/George VI, 1942

  • Rs. 2,300.00

High grade Silver 5 Kori coin of the Princely State of Kutch, minted in the name of Vijayrajji, the ruler of Kutch from 1942-1948. 

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 VI, his title and the date as per the Christian calendar. All of these are in Urdu.  

These coins were minted in a single year as per the English calendar (1942), but over 2 years in Vikram Samvat (1998 & 1999) - hence there are two variants 1998/1942 and 1999/1942.
