Gold Coins in the Collection of the Asiatic Society

Sutapa Sinha (Editor)
Synopsis The present catalogue is a classified catalogue of the gold coins now preserved in the Society's cabinet. Most of these are pagodas and fanams of South India, presumably collected from Tipu Sultan's Treasury long ago. There are also two Kushana gold-coins of the Third Century A.D., Indo-British Star Pagodas, Afghan-Durrani Coins, a few Ottoman gold coins. Venetian Gold Ducats, of Malay, and a few "unattributed" pieces. The variety is numismatically important.

This catalogue has been prepared by the Late Dr. Rita Sharma with meticulous care, and competently edited by Dr. Sutapa Sinha. The illustrated catalogue would certainly be useful to the students of Numismatics and History, and would be appreciated by the general readers.
