This website is launched by the Thakkar Foundation for the collectors
and info-seekers of Indian numismatic and para-numismatic items
like badges, cash coupons, coins, medals, monograms, passes, seals-dies,
tokens and weights. This website classifies its Indian Numismatic
Heritage into nine major sections like Badges, Cash Coupons, Coins,
Medals, Monograms, Passes, Seals & Dies, Tokens and Weights
with further classification of 191 sub categories, which in turn
opens full featured web pages with thumbnail images and detailed
Each web page is designed in such a manner that it contains a
drop-down menu containing all nine major divisions and 191 sub
divisions at the top for easy and effective navigation. Here,
a navigator has to just follow a link by placing a cursor in the
main menu, which will open its sub-menu, and if a topic in sub-menu
has sub-links, arrow is placed to indicate sub divisions. This
saves lots of navigation and understanding time, being wasted
in unnecessary clicking and opening of the required link.
Each section has introductory brief information under the heading
of ‘About this Subject’ located first in drop-down
menu under that particular section. This gives an overall picture
of the subject along with its sub-divisions.
An effort is made to give new dimensions to the subjects like
Badges, Tokens, Passes, Weights, Seals and Dies wherein many new
topics, worthy of collections, are presented.
At the bottom of the website some informative pages are given.
On this Website an effort has been made to present only Mughal,
Indian Princely States and Colonial coins excluding Ancient, Medieval,
Sultanate and Republic of India coins, which may be presented
On this Website subject of Bank Notes of India is not included.
This website is an outcome of the numismatic quest of the founder,
Mr. Praful K. Thakkar. An effort has been made to provide accurate
information as far as possible. However any help or comments,
to enrich the site is heartily welcome.
