A one rupee coin costs 10 crores! You were shocked to hear? But it is true. In India, the price of a one taka coin has risen to Rs 10 crore.
However, this coin is not such a coin. The coin is 136 years old. The circumference is a bit larger than the current one taka coin. Another feature of the coin is that it has a picture of Queen Victoria of England engraved on one side and ‘One Rupee India 1885’ written in English letters on the other side.
It is estimated that the coin was minted in Mumbai in 1885 during the British rule in India. Nine years ago, there was a slight change in the Indian currency. The coin has been replaced by Empress Victoria or ‘Victoria Empress’ instead of Queen Victoria. The coin that was put up for auction was of that time.
