India (East Company) Spiritual Tokens 1616 to 1839
When you find a copper coin with the inscription EAST INDIA COMPANY dated before 1839, usually with early dates such as 1616, 1717, 1818, and denominations ANNA, HALF ANNA, or RUPEE, the coin is not issued by the East India Company, but a modern spiritually oriented token recently manufactured and sold to tourists. These tokens generally include the likeness of different Hindu gods, as well as related spiritual symbols and caricatures.
