But Did the East India Company, that brought a two hundred long oppressive colonial rule to India, actually issue coins to honour Hindu Gods ? As the images of coins have broken the internet, a section of netizens claimed that “ the british honoured the Hindu gods something the Congress never did ”. Since one of the coins has Lord Ram on one side the war cry is more boisterous Even Britishers gave obedience to Hindu sentiments. But indian Congress denied the being of Shri Ram and made fun of Hindus. Is there something more to the East India Company ‘s dissentious and expansionist past that Indians never knew of ? The company received a Royal Charter from Queen Elizabeth on 31 December 1600 and its a chronicled fact that with an army of 2.6 hundred thousand soldiers it indulged in most unfair practices to further the cause of the crown. do it try to trick the Indians by sugar coating the pill and issue its own currentness with images of amerind gods ? Since netizens were encashing the coins, we decided to do a fact check. The images show that the coins were issued in year 1818 and 1839. Sanjib Singh, the spokesperson of the National Museum in Delhi said, “ East India Company did consequence coins in India which were made of Corolina ( Gold ), Anglina ( Silver ), Cupproon ( Copper ) and Tinny ( Tin ). Across the universe, till now there is absolutely no reference of coins with Hindu Gods inscribed on them. ”
Singh, who is besides an archeologist, said, “ There is mention about coins with Pgoda and Venkateshwar Gods. South indian coins have had Gods since the begin. ” Reserve Bank of India ‘s web site has a accomplished history of neologism in India. India has been one of the earliest issuers of coins in the universe. deluxe states such as Hyderabad, Faridkot and Udaipur issued their own coins . reservoir : hypertext transfer protocol : //rbi.org.in/Scripts/mc_colonial.aspx generator : hypertext transfer protocol : //rbi.org.in/Scripts/mc_colonial.aspx source : hypertext transfer protocol : //rbi.org.in/Scripts/mc_colonial.aspx Blogger Kulraj Singh, in February 2009, called the coins in controversy as imposter. In fact, Singh posted the images of coins on his blog and the ones that are doing the rounds on the internet presently seem to have been tweaked from the pictures that the blogger posted. besides, we can notice the images of contentious coins have misspelled the word Anna ( once used currency unit ). They have written it as Aana. There are several of these credibly duplicate coins available for sale on e-commerce websites for adenine low as Rs199 . source : hypertext transfer protocol : //rbi.org.in/Scripts/mc_british_GeorageVI.aspx Numismatist Dr PV Bharat speaking about the possibility of these coins, said, “ These types of coins with pictures of gods are made for the purpose of sale to alien tourists. Whenever East India Company issued a coin it had their logo. ” But did coins ever have the pictures of gods ? “ Temple tokens do have the images of god but they have no prize and surely dont have Anna written on them, ” Dr Bharat said.
