COINS OF INDIA, PAKISTAN, BANGLADESH, NEPAL & BHUTAN
FROM ANCIENT TIMES TO THE PRESENT



INDO-GREEK SILVER DRACHM OF APOLLODOTUS II

Indo-Greek silver Drachm of Apollodotus II, 80-65BCThe Indo-Greeks descended from Alexander the Great, who conquered northern India in 326BC. They were the eastern most part of Hellenistic culture, ruling the area around Afghanistan, Pakistan and north-western India. They maintained Greek culture, religion and language, incorporating it with elements of Indian culture and language. Apollodotus II was one of the greatest Indo-Greek kings.  During his reign, from about 80 to 65BC he re-established much of the glory and territory of the Indo-Greek kingdoms.  After his death the Indo-Greek kingdom fragmented and soon disappeared.  This silver drachm of Apollodotus II reflects both the Greek and Indian culture.  The obverse depicts the bust of the king with a Greek legend that translates as "Of Apollodotus the Great, Savior & Father loving King".  The reverse depicts Athena Alkidemos standing and has the legend in Kharoshthi script that translates "Savior King Appolodotus".  He obviously thought well of himself.  The coin is approximately 17mm in diameter. It is an attractive and historic ancient silver coin from the farthest reaches of Greek culture.

The coinage of the Habbarids of Sind (also known as the Amirs of Sindh) consisted of  small (10 to 11mm) silver Dammas (Dhammas) that feature Arabic inscriptions on both sides.  In 1026 Ghaznavid Sultan Mahmud conquered Sindh.  We are pleased to offer silver Dammas of two of the Habbarid sultans of Sindh.  Abdallah I, who ruled from about 884 to 913AD, and Ali, who ruled from about 973 to 987AD

COINS OF THE INDIAN PRINCELY STATES

COINS FROM 6 DIFFERENT INDIAN NATIVE STATES
Though the British controlled most of India prior to its independence in 1947, many of the Indian states retained their right to issue coins.  Most coins could only be used within the state they were issued and there was little standardization of the coins or denominations issued from state to state. The result was a bewildering array of coins, many of which have limited mintages. We have assembled a collection of coins from six different Indian native states.  The set  includes a square Paisafrom Bahawalpur from the 1920's;  1/4 Anna of Gwalior that pictures the Maharajah Madho Rao that was minted fom 1913 to 1917;  2 Pai from Hyderabad minted from 1911 to 1930; 1 Paisa from Jodhpur struck during World War II;  1 Dokdo from Junagadh minted in 1909 dated 1945 in the Vima Samvat calendar;  amd  an eight-sided 1 Anna from Mewar minted in 1943.  All eight coins are copper or bronze.  Coins grade from Very Good to Very Fine.   An identification guide is included with each set.  Because of the difficulty in obtaining coins of the Indian States, we sometimes have to vary the exact coins included in the set.
