Uma Rupia, Portuguese India, 1912
Silver 1 Rupee (Uma Rupia) of Portuguese India - Republic of Portugal, minted in 1912. In 1908, an assassin shot dead King Carlos 1 of Portugal and heir apparent, Luis Phillipe - in what was called the Lisbon Regicide. The two killings led to the ascension of King Manuel II, who reigned for just 2 years before he was deposed and Portugal was declared a Republic.
