Thanks NumisMattic2200

 

My avatar coin is dated back to 2nd -3rd Century BC known as Tribal Coin -Type 1 (PRINCEP ) of Ujjaini. It has many symbols as I discussed earlier on Coinpeople.com . Four rings connected across symbol is known as Ujjaini Symbol. There is also a tree in fence to the left of it. Above it Pond of water with Fish and Turtle accompanied with Six Armed Symbol and River at the bottom. This coin is believed to circulated inside the city and not a imperial coin.

That's pretty interesting Shariq, your avatar looked very abstract until you described each scene taking place. I can see each detail very clearly now, thank you for sharing. I've always been interested in non-European ancient coins, unfortunately there is very little information to be found on them. It's nice to have some members who seem to know about this field of numismatics.

Hi Shariq,

 

What are the other mints in India/Southern Asia?

 

 

 

Dear theheadpoint

 

The present mints of Independent India are

 

1. Mumbai - Whose mint mark is a small "." i.e dot or diamond

2. Noida - whose mint mark is a thick dot.

3. Calcutta - No Mint Mark

4. Hyderabad - whose mint mark is "star"(in the middle or below the middle of the year) as I discussed above

 

All mint marks generally found below the year

 

 

Some of the current circulatory coins of India also minted at International Locations, some of them are

 

1. Heaton Press Mint (Birmingham) - Mint Mark "H"

2. Royal Mint of Cananda (Ottawa) - Mint Mark "C"

3. Moscow - M

4. Seoul (Korea) - Mint Mark "Star" below the last digit of Year

5. Taegu (Korea) - Mint Mark "Star" below the first digit of Year

6. Royal Mint UK(London) - Mint Mark "Daimond" below the first digit of the year

many others

 

 

Before Independence India has many Native and Princely States having hundreds of different Mints and Mint Marks and Also during Mughals the number of Mints was more than 200.

 

 

 

 

Regards
