Error Date Coin of Karauli

20 Sep 2021  Mon

The Maharaja of Karauli belongs to the Jadon clan of Rajput and claimed to be a descendant of Hindu god Krishna. Bijai Pal established the dynasty and built a fort in Bharatpur. His eldest son, Tahan Pal built Tahangarh Fort in 1058 and captured the entire region which defines above given Karauli. During Kunwar Pal’s reign, Mohammad Ghori had captured Tahangarh and other territories of Karauli in 1196.

In order to save his life, Kunwar Pal fled to a village in Rewah state. Later, Arjun Pal tried to recover the loss of his ancestors by capturing Mandrael fort after which he gradually took control of the lost empire. Thereafter, he made Karauli town, the capital in 1348. After the fall of the Mughal Empire, under the treaty of 1817, Karauli came under British protection.

Bharat Pal of Karauli Princely State had issued silver Rupee at Karauli mint in 1856 Anno Hijri. The error is found in the date. The date is inscribed as 1852 AH instead of 1856 AH. The obverse of the coin depicts, “Persian legend with AH date” and the reverse of the coin depicts, “Katar, Jhar, RY date, Mint name, and Julus formula”.
