ccg's 1804 48 Stuivers, Ceylon


In 1796, the British East India company took over formerly Dutch held coastal areas of Ceylon - the Dutch having been invaded by France, and their preference for their colonies to be surrendered to the British (allies) rather than to the French. To provide a circulating currency, various thick "dump" style silver coins were struck, all bearing an elephant design.
