Definitive Coins - Part 1 - Anna Series

The Anna series was introduced after independence as the first coinage of republic India.
There were pattern coins designed in 1949 that were rejected. See the post on pattern coins.

1 Pice

Half Anna

One Anna

Two Anna Series

The 2 Anna Series was minted in the year 1950, 1954 and 1955. The 1955 2 Anna coin is amongst the rarest coin of republic India in the definitive series. It's price is in the range of 50,000 to 60,000/- for a good quality coin. This is joined with the Rs 1 Small coin of the year 1982.

As this is very expensive, there are quite a few fake coins of this in market. I have seen some fake coins getting sold for as much as 25,000. The buyers not realizing this.

1/4 Rupee

1/2 Rupee
