    COPPER COINS

    The above named album in the Sikh Coins Group contains scans of a good selection of Sikh Copper coins. Copper coins were the normal trading coins of the people of Punjab and open the door into the money used in general circulation. The Scans of copper coins of Amritsar, Multan and Peshawar can be found in the album, many in fantastic condition with variety of mint marks relating to holy symbols. All the scans have been donated to the Sikh Coins Group by the members anonymously. The TOP coin image has a Nishan Sahib on it and the image on the BOTTOM shows the word NANAK in full. It is important to note that copper paisa of Amritsar were the very few coins to have Gurmukhi text on them, where as the coins of the rest of the Punjab had Farsi/Persian text. Here is the link for this album:- http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SikhCo...66531/pic/list

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
