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!

This bronze coin comes from Japan and was one of the last issued before they went Decimal. It reads Tempo Tshuo or 100 Mon and has a validation mark on the edge. It was cast at Edo (Tokyo), it is oblong with a large square hole in the center. It was issued between 1835 and 1870, just before contact with the outside world was more firmly established with the visit of Perry. A most interesting coin and one that you certainly don’t see everyday. It has been sometime since we were last were able to offer you these coins.
