Shariq Khan Posted April 10, 2009 Report Share Posted April 10, 2009 This Coin is the excellent example of willingness of Nature Conservation among the people of Ancient India. The symbols of the coins are self explanatory about this fact. This coin was first mentioned by PRINSEP in 1837. Some Symbols are as follows 1. Fish and Turtle in Pond - gives the message of water and marine life conservation 2. Tree in Fence - gives the message to preserve trees and greenry 3. River(a small curve line below) - gives the message to preserve fresh water resources Some other symbols whose meaning is yet to find 1. Ujjain Symbol - Four Rings interconnected by the help of line 2. Six Armed Symbol - Alternate Arrow and the ring 3. Taurine 4. One unidentified symbol This coins was minted in ancient city of Ujjaini which was the capital of ancient Avanti region of Central India's Malwa Region. Ujjaini now becomes Ujjain.
