India (British) 1/2 and 2 Annas 1939 to 1947
Britain ruled India until 1947. The East India Company issued many interesting coins and did not stick religiously to standard circular shape. Most of the British East India coins show the reigning British monarch on the front with rupee, mohur, and anna denominations on the back. The square pattern in our picture was used on the 1/2 and 2 anna denominations during the mid 20th century. You can see an example of a wavy-edge 1 anna coin at this CoinQuest link.
Coin: 4933 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
