Title: The ANTIQUE Coins of British India King George V (1911-1936)

The ANTIQUE Coins of British India King George
V(1911-1936)

¼ Rupee ½ Rupee Silver Coins
  • King Edward VII died on May 6, 1910 and was taken
    after to the position of royalty by his son King
    George V, who had his coronation on June 22,
    1911. So, Antique Indian Coins were minted in
    India with the image of King George V from 1911
    to 1936. Because of the increase in the cost of
    silver caused by World War I (1914-1918) the
    silver 1/2 Rupee, 1/4 Rupee and 2 Annas were
    ceased and new cupro-nickel coins introduced (8
    Annas, 4 Annas, 2 Anna) to join the cupro-nickel
    1 Anna coin). These new coins were not famous,
    however, so the 8 Anna and 4 Anna coins were
    ceased shortly after introduction. The 1/4 Rupee
    and 1/2 Rupee silver coins quickly continued
    production.

Interesting story about Pig Rupee
  • On the 1911 issues of the Rupee, Half Rupee,
    Quarter Rupee, Two Annas and 1/4 Anna the King is
    shown wearing a robe with a small elephant on it.
    This elephant was thought to look a pig with the
    trunk appearing to be a pig snout and the short
    legs not appearing very elephant-like. This
    angered the religious sensibilities of numerous
    people, so most of the Rupees minted for 1911
    were withheld from distribution and later melted.
    The 1912 Antique coins of India had a new updated
    elephant.

One Rupee (1911-1936)
  • The Rupee was minted in both Calcutta and Bombay.
    There is no mint mark for Calcutta. The Bombay
    issues have a small dot turn around under the
    lavish close to the base of the coin .The
    elephant on the Kings robe was the first year of
    issue (1911) which was considered to resemble a
    pig, thus the variety is known as the "pig rupee"
    . This variant is also on the 1/2 Rupee, the 1/4
    Rupee, the 2 Annas and the 1/4 Anna coins. The
    elephant figure was updated with its design and
    this plan was used on all issues starting in 1912.

8 Annas - Copper-Nickel (1919-1920)
  • 8 Annas coin was introduced in 1919 to replace
    the silver Half Rupee, due to the expanded cost
    of silver. It wasn't very famous, though, and
    because of this and an extensive number of fakes,
    it was stopped in 1920 and pulled back from
    course (it stopped to be legitimate delicate in
    October 1924). In 1920 it was delivered just at
    the Bombay mint.
