Welcome to the Blog: Historic Coins of India
There is no better time than now to help solve some of the mysteries of numismatics in the great Sub Continent. We hope you can assist us in this new research. We don’t even mind being told we are wrong. So please join in when asked and HELP.

The journey will be long, as intense as you would like to make it and informative.
With the help of the great Indian publishing house of Manohar, a new journey in the numismatics of the greater Indian sub-continent is about to begin. The journey involves everyone. We hope you will help contribute by advising of coins unlisted in general catalogs and dates of coins that remain unlisted.
The work will be interactive and update-able. Eras, reigns and coins will be presented in full colour and as a first the transcriptions will come alive with full dedicated translations.
Coins with couplets will have the verses re translated and shown in full colour for ease of demonstration learning. The meaning and presentation of the couplets will be fully discussed.
Learn and enjoy with us. Help us make new discoveries. The first of a long series of books is now in our publisher’s final edit!
A review has been taken of the current proposed publishing schedule. Initially we called for submissions for potential new work however it has been decided that no new work from outside the core research group can now be accepted. A specific standard is required for work including presentation and that standard will not be reduced for any publication or work presenter regardless of previous work that may have been published.
