Coins of India

The Government of British India ran efficient mints in Bombay and Calcutta, which were usually managed by British military officers. This limited the assistance of The Royal Mint to the preparation of master tools from which the Indian mints could make their own dies. In 1908, however, The Royal Mint helped to provide technical assistance with the introduction of a new one anna coin with a revolutionary scalloped shape. In 1986, a very large order was received for 1 rupee cupro-nickel coins featuring an existing design. Dated 1985, they feature the famous Ashokan pillar at Sarnath, the site of Buddha’s first sermon, and show four lions back to back. This is the emblem of modern India and has featured on Indian coins since its independence. More recently, coin blanks have been supplied to India to assist the Indian mints to meet the demand for their coins.
