      A short history of ancient Indian coinage. Rupee is the name of Indian coin and currency. It was derived from a Sanskrit language word Rupya. Rupya literally means the wrought silver used as coins of trade or currency during BCE (Before Common Era). Ancient Indian Coinage — A Systematic Study of Money Economy from Janapada Period to Early Medieval Period ( bc to ad ) Author: Rekha Jain ISBN:

      Coinage of India, issued by imperial dynasties and middle kingdoms, began anywhere between 6th century BCE to 1st millennium BCE and consisted mainly of copper and silver coins in its initial stage. Scholars remain divided over the origins of Indian coinage. Cowry shells was first used in India as commodity money. The Indus Valley Civilization dates back between BCE and BCE. RJ is comprehensive in her coverage of the coins of ancient India. Rather than presenting only the most famous coins of each period she delves into the local and regional issues. The level of detail is very impressive, both in her knowledge of the coins and her use of ancient literature. And the book is clear and well organised.

      The Book starts from ancient coins used in Maha Janapadas on-wards till Gupta coinage. There are some nice learning from this book overall on how the coinage evolved in Ancient India. There are few plates of coins (pictures) at the end of this book, but i did not find any reference to them in the book /5(6). Coins in Medieval India had begun to have their own path of movement under major metamorphoses. The unit of account came to be strengthened and coalesced and was referred to as the 'tanka' with the 'jittals' as the smaller value coins.
