Some one offered me this type of coins a few years back for dirt cheap rate, and he said this is hand punched coins of East India Company... I paid double the weight of the copper then for one kg of such coins... not sure if there was really hand punched coins in East India Company though.

Looks like British India Presidential Pice or Half Pice. Can you post the reverse (other side) of this coin?

These are hammered coins.

Suraj,

    that must be one of the great deals you would have made :-) Any spares for exchange/swap or sell?

@Ranjit,

Those coins are at my native, PM your address to me, will send you a few for free...
The spade symbol below the 4 number with VEIC is more clearer in the coins that I have... and few of them are of centered.. will check if I have any in bangalore and post a pic in the evening.

Looks like a Bombay Presidency coin,as the Bale mark symbol was in use only on Bombay Presidency's coins.
