Lead Karshapana Of Mulananda, Ca AD 200

The Chutus ruled a kingdom centred around the city of Banavasi in present-day Karnataka, Southern India, for over two centuries, from around AD 125-345. These coins are struck in lead, belonging to the ruler Mulananda, and struck around AD 200, showing an arched hill with a river motif below on the obverse and a tree within a railed lattice on the reverse. Rather simple but quite beautiful coins which are now over 1800 years old. Very limited supply.

Malaya & British Borneo, 10c 1961 Unc

This is a fantastic coin because it represents two countries that no longer exist and yet it carries the portrait of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II. It is a 10 Cents issued by Malaya & British Borneo in 1961 just 9 years after she took the throne and the last year that they were issued. They are in Uncirculated condition but have mellowed just a bit over the past 61 years. Very Difficult to find today and somewhat rare.
