The purpose of this web site is to describe the beautiful coinage of British India 1862-1947. The attempt has been made to fully document every major variety using high-quality photographs. This should allow collectors to accurately identify their coins, and buyers/sellers can agree on the coins being bought and sold. My hope is that this web site will be useful to all collectors of British India and help popularize this most interesting area of coin collecting. The combination of beautiful design, high quality strikes, interesting varieties and relatively low cost makes for an ideal subject for study and collecting. User input with corrections, additions or other commentary is most welcome.
