Welcome to Aleph Coin Blog (Circulated Silver & Gold Coins in The Northern Malay States - Kedah, Perlis & Penang - Circa 1600 until 1957). This blog will preview my current collection or new information of coins that will later be added into my on-going project (that I am doing independently, due to my interest in History and Numismatic). I might be adding information of other coin and banknote that I came across. I am looking forward and much appreciated if someone can come to give information, sharing knowledge, sample of coins into making this project a reality. I also receive support from Dr Ibrahim Baker (a medical doctor, who has so much interest in Malay coins) and Dr Mahani Musa (expert in Penang's history, USM lecturer). Should you have information to relay, don't hesitate to contact me at - Together, we work to preserving our history...

British India Colony : King George VI One Rupee 1940

As a reference, since my coin is not EF enough.

Obverse: One Rupee 1940

Rev: George VI King Emperor

I bought this in June-2010 but only recently I noticed this piece and only put them into database. How silly. The condition is very good and the price was reasonable.
