I was just going through other posts and so many of you seem to me "Masters" in identifying coins. How come no one has identified my coins yet? :( Silence is breaking my patience! I hope someone can come up with some information about these coins.

Please, use some patience. Not everybody is on-line every minute of the day. Usually a question will be answered within a few hours at most. But if your question is not answered immediately, be patient. Some members only visit the site every few days.

I would however recommend you post it in other ancient or medieval coin forums if no one attributes them in next couple of days since ICN is essentially a niche forum of modern Indian coin collectors.

well I was able to get it identified from other forums. Here is the result. :) I hope it will add knowledge in this forum for this perticular type of coin.


Coin no.s 1 and 2 are of Nawanagar. They are issued imitating the style of Gujarat sultan Muzaffir shah. On the bottom, "Sree Jama" can be seen struck in Devanagari script. Jama stands for Jamnagar which was the capital city and the princely state was known by its capital.Presence of this legend is confirmatory of its origin from Nawanagar. Coin struck around 1850 with frozen date AH(9)78


The denomination of the coin should be Dokdo or One and a half dokdo. More inforamtion for coin 1:
