Description

1814 British United East India Company 1/2 Rupee

Rare, Sharp, and Historically Interesting

Java. British United East India Company gold 1/2 Rupee 1814-Z, KM248, Fr-15, Prid-2, S-589A, AU53 NGC. Struck under the coinage act of July 6th, 1813 that dictated gold coins be struck of 18 carat fineness with the value of one gold 1/2 rupee to equal the value of 8 silver Javanese rupees. Given the obvious quality control limitations of a branch mint in Java, the present example has been somewhat crudely accomplished with bright luster remaining in the fields and a sharply struck-up design. A multitude of underlying crosshatching planchet adjustment marks (as made) remains visible. Nonetheless, the type and date combination appears to be quite rare, as we can find no modern auction records for it. Also, the multinational aspect of three observed dates in the design - Christian (1814), Javanese script (AS1741), and Arabic (AH1229) - broadens the appeal.

Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate' Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson.

The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
