Indian Coins and Bank Notes website is a resource developed for the benefit of the Indian Coins and Bank Notes numismatic community interested in Indian Coins and Currency notes collection. Our website is dedicated to all Indian Coins and Paper Money enthusiasts around the world. Our aim is to have an extensive database which consists of Indian coins and currency notes lists with color pictures.  Some of the pictures are from our own collection and other are from friends and fellow collectors. 

We plan to keep expanding until we have covered all possible coins & notes from every era. It is a daunting task but with the help of all our visitors, contributors and well-wishers we will succeed.For the convenience of browsing our website have been divided into era's which are distinct. You will find inks to all the websites if you click on the sister website links. Once you are in each section you will find links for coins and currency issue lists with pictures when available. 

If you see photo required caption and wish to contribute please do not hesitate to contact us. We believe currently there are no such extensive resources that are available. Additionally, all the resources are free. Our discussion forum will help enthusiasts exchange information and ideas. We also offer free classifieds ads for collectors and sellers for free. Post your ads on Buy/Sell section. 

We have taken it upon ourselves to make this one stop resource for all Indian Coins and Paper Money from every era. We definitely cannot complete this task by ourselves especially pictures/photos. We need help. Please contact us if you want to contribute any material, articles, errors or importantly photos that we lack. We will be ever so grateful.

I) “The coins of the British common wealth of nations” IV India volume 1 and 2 by Major Pridmore. Published by Spink and sons London.

Rating: *****

Comments: This is probably the Bible for British India Coin collectors. It has extensive information about most British India Coins. Highly recommend for advanced collectors. Probably too detailed for amateurs or new collectors.

II) “Coins of India” by Deepak Chakrabarthy, Published by Hobby publications, kolkatta.

Rating:
****

Comments: This is probably is a real nice starter for British India Coin collectors. It has good information with some variations as compared to Pridmore. Pictures are decent with good explanation. It is inexpensive if available. There haven't been any new reprints, whatever is available in the market are older copies. It also has Republic India Coins and Commerative coins.

III) “History of Moghul Emperors of India” by Stanley Lane Poole

IV) "History of the coinage of the Territories of the East India company in the Indian peninsula and catalogue of coins in the madras museum" by Edgar Thurston, published by Govt press, Madras.

V ) "Copper coins of India" by William valentine, published by Spink and Sons, London.

VI) “Standard catalogue of world coins” by Chester Krause and Clifford Misher, Krause publications, USA

Rating: *****

Comments: If you want to know anything about any coin in the world this would be the go to book. Probably too detailed for new collectors. Too simple for advanced collectors as some of the coins especially in the 1600-1800AD sections have been lumped. Too bulky to carry around and expensive if you are just looking for a British India Coin book. Not a bad life time investment. The books are divided into 4 separate sections and you have to buy them separately.

VII) “Coins” by Parameshwar Lal Gupta, Published by Book trust of India, New Delhi.
