The Coinage of Jaintiapur: With an Account of the Last Days of the Jaintia Raj

N.G. Rhodes (Author) S.K. Bose (Author)
Synopsis The coinage of Jaintia has been somewhat neglected by collectors and scholars over the years. A few of the coins have been quite common, but many collectors have spurned them because of the poor quality of silver, thinking that they may be forgeries. The first serious collector of Jaintia coins in Kolkata was the late Vasant Chowdhury, who built up what was, at the time, the finest collection of the series ever assembled. After his sad death in 2002, his collection of Jaintia coins was bought in its entirety by the prominent Kolkata collector, J.P. Goenka, who has continued to add to it with commendable diligence.

This book will help to place on record, not only the numismatic history of the Jaintia Raj, but also to recall the sad demise, under the British, of a once proud state.

About the authors

N.G. Rhodes

Nicholas Rhodes was born in 1946 in London, UK. He has been interested in numismatics all his life, both as a student and a collector. He is at present a council member of The Royal Asiatic Society, London; Secretary General of the Oriental Numismatic Society and an active member of several other related organizations. He was also Honorary Treasurer of the Royal Numismatic Society for many years. He has now retired from full time work as an actuary in international reinsurance, in order to spend more time on his academic interests. He has written and lectured widely, both in India and the West, on the coinage of the Himalayas and North East India.

S.K. Bose

S.K. Bose was born in 1939 in Assam, India. While serving his employer, the State Bank of India, he was requested to conduct coin exhibitions at different centres, titled ‘Story of Money’. This re-ignited his childhood fascination for history, historical structures and antique collection which is time translated to a passion to study of coins from North East India. He is now associated with several organizations at the national level devoted to history and numismatics. He has to his credit more than fifty research papers and three books prior to this one.
