India, Princely State of Jaipur, Struck in the Names of George VI and Madho Singhji, Dated 1949, Unofficial Imitative
This coin is an unofficial imitative with an obverse, struck in the name of George VI, from the reign of Man Singh II dated 1949, and a reverse naming his predecessor, Madho Singh, dated regnal year 3. Madho Singh died in 1922. In 1949 the Princely State was absorbed into the newly independent India and official issue of nazarana coins ceased. It was a tradition to give nazars upon auspicious occasions, like weddings, as gift to temples, and also on certain occasions to the Maharajah. After the state mint closed, the sarafs (money lenders) in the city produced these coins to satisfy the needs of the people. Although listed in the Standard Catalog of World Coins as KM195, coins of this type were never struck at the Jaipur state mint.IS97942.
