India, George VI 1/4 Anna 1940 Uncirculated

Of the four Monarchs who ruled over India in the 20th Century, one of the hardest to find in nice copper or bronze coins is the last one, King George VI. Don’t forget he only came to the throne in 1937 and India became Independent in 1948. During that time there was a World War and people had something else to do than collect coins. We have a nice group of King George VI 1/4 Annas on offer. These are the largest of his bronze coins issued. The coins on offer also have the first head on them and this design was only issued for three years, the coins of 1940 are on offer. They are not easy to find, and are in Uncirculated condition with original lustre. You have the crowned bust of the Monarch on one side and the denomination and date on the other side.

Picture of India, George VI 1942 1/2 Anna BU

India, George VI 1942 1/2 Anna BU

India issued coins with the portraits of British Monarchs from the reign of King William IV to King George VI. After that India became Independent and no Royals were on their coins from then on in. At the end of King George VI’s reign they issued a square ½ Anna in nickel-brass in 1942 without dots on either side of the Country *India* for the Bombay Mint. From 1942-1945 they issued the coin with the dots either side of India. From 1946-47 they issued this coin in copper-nickel. So the 1942 dots is an important type of coin. The mintage is just under 8 million, but compared to the other dates, it is minuscule. The lowest other dates are between 159 and 437 million! That makes 1942 a very low mintage, very important type coin. We bought a small group of 1942 no dots ½ Anna of 1942 and they are in Choice Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The catalogue only prices them up to Uncirculated condition. We don’t know how good these coins are in India, because we could not find any for sale there… We think these are fantastic coins and who knows what they are really worth. Low mintage, one-year type coin, top condition, King George VI, and a very popular Indian coin. We have guessed at the price, which if will be raised substantially if we are wrong... Get them while you can!
