India 1/4, 1/2, and 1 Rupee  1862 to 1947
India 1/4, 1/2, and 1 Rupee 1862 to 1947

Nice coin, Mickey. These old silver rupees from India represent an interesting series of coins, and many of them -- especially the older dates -- are valuable.

The coin in our picture is one of the earlier versions. Later coins changed monarchs (India was British until 1947) and reverse designs, but the basic coin was the same all the way from 1862 to 1947. You will see coins in this series as follows:

1/4, 1/2, and 1 rupee
Victoria Empress
Victoria Queen
Edward King and Emperor
George King and Emperor
various designs on the reverse

This appraisal page covers all these variations for silver coins between 1862 and 1947.

The listings below give approximate catalog values in US dollars. There are variations in these coins that we do not cover because it is beyond the scope of the CoinQuest forum. If you get interested in collecting these coins, use other reference material to understand variations. The values below are *ballpark* estimates for all dates and variations. Use our Important Terminology page (link at uppe left) to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.

Sir i had this rupee 1 coin of year 1912 of queen victoria . What is its exact value - suthar lalit
The 1912 date currently catalogs at $30 when average circulated, $35 when well preserved, and $40 when absolutely, fully uncirculated. These values are the same for coins struck at both the Bombay and Calcutta mints with king GEORGE V. - CoinQuest (Chris)

Sir I have one rupee India 1879 and 1918 George V king emperor coins. What's the value? And how would I know coin is uncirculated. - sunil
Approximate catalog values are shown on this page. See above. Read the Important Terminology page for information about catalog values and fully uncirculated coins. Fully uncirculated coins are ones that have never been touched by human hands -- they go from the mint directly into coin collections. They are very rare and that makes them valuable. - CoinQuest (Paul)

Sir I have a 1929'S half penny coin of King Georgivs V. What is its current price.

Sir i had this rupee coin of year 1933, 1939, 1939, 1887, 1945, 1888, 1886 of queen victoria . What is its exact value - indrajit bhattacharjee.

It would be nice, Indrajit, if one could place and exact value on a coin. This is not possible. Coins trade on a free and open market, and each coin has its own merits and disadvantages. CoinQuest, like all coin guides, gives approximate values. A good way to assess a single coin is to find one like it on the eBay auction web site. Once you find one, watch the selling price. - CoinQuest (Paul)

Catalog values are shown on this page. Convert US dollars to rupees using xe.com [PRESS HERE]. To sell your coin, you must choose one of three possible methods. The methods are explained on this page [PRESS HERE]. eBay is a good place to sell coins like yours. - CoinQuest (Paul)

sir i have a coin of 1/2 rupee of george vi emperor of 1943. can u tell me the exact value plz. - NITESH
Hi: Approximate values for your coin are quoted on this page. Value depends on condition. It is not possible to quote an 'exact value' for a collector coin because they are traded on a free market and the market changes continuously. Also, one collector may pay more or less than another collector for the same coin. - CoinQuest (Paul)

My brother has a 1947 one rupee coin in really good condition I was wondering how much it is worth. It has the lion on the back n I forget Wats on the front if u could help me out I'd appreciate it - ARJUN

Hai its Deepak and i have 1835, 1840 and 1907 Indian one rupee coin i just want to know the exact value for the coins.... - Vadiraj
We give catalog values, which are very inexact, on this page. You can get a coin catalog which gives values for each date and condition. But we don't do that on CoinQuest. - CoinQuest (Paul)

I have a coin of queen victoria one quarter in 1862. I want to sell. What is its exact value? Plesse say - sk raza
There is no such thing as an 'exact value' for a collectible coin. Your coin is worth what someone will pay for it. This is why it is important to sell your coin at a place where the most possible collectors will see it. eBay is such a place. Very approximate catalog values are given on this page. - CoinQuest (Paul)

Sir i had this rupee 1 coin of year 1862 of queen victoria . What is its exact value - RAJ SHREE M
Raj -- There is no such thing as an 'exact value' for a coin. They trade on an open market and each coin sells at its own level. Read this page for an approximate value of your coin. - CoinQuest (Paul)

Sir I have a coin of one quarter of 1939 during the period of George VI. What will be the price for the same.... its in a good condition....
