The above album in the Sikh Coins Group contains scans of Sikh silver rupees of Amritsar Mint (top) together with the parallel series coins of Anandghar Mint (bottom). Some of the best examples of these type of coins, are in this album. A must for anyone wishing to compare the coins of both mints for the years VS1841 upto VS1849. The only distinguishing mark which stand out on these coins is the Katar (dagger) mark on the Amritsar coins and the flower or bud like mark on the Anandghar coins, together with the name of the Mint city/town. Anyone whishing to add scans of the missing coins please do send your scans directly to Gurprit Ji at the Sikh Coins Group on Yahoo. It is important to note that all scans of the coins in the above named album were donated by individual members of the Sikh Coins Group who wish to remain annonymous. My thanks go to all those who provided the precious scans of the coins.

Here is the link for the above album and topic:-

Dear SPN Group Members,

the only living evidence of the Sikh Empire which is readily available to all those who are interested in Sikh numismatics are the actual coins. To ensure that new and existing members are fully up to date with new varieties of coins, I thought it would be good to periodically highlight some of the existing albums (like the one above) we have in the groups photo section.

Shabad Vichaar by SPN'ers

Ang 690 - Har Jeeo Kirapaa Karae Thaa Naam Dhhiaaeeai Jeeo | ਹਰਿ ਜੀਉ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਕਰੇ ਤਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਈਐ ਜੀਉ

This shabad uses the word ਜੀਉ frequently, it is written as if Guru Ram Das is talking to a friend...
