This silver coin was issued in 1247 AH during the reign of King Krishnaraja Wodeyar, it was the time when Mysore was a British Protectorate.

The obverse of this coin depicts a dancing image of BalKrishna in the centre with holding butter ball in both hands within the dotted border. The reverse of this coin illustrates a Persian legend on the whole flan, which consists AH date, mint name and Julus formula within the dotted border.

The coin is a good way to connect with the lore of Krishna Janmashtami, it is celebrated with great enthusiasm. In every corner of India, the way of celebrating this day is different. All over Maharashtra the swing of Dahihandi is in full force.

Mintage World wishes you all a very enchanting and mesmerising Krishna Janmashtami! ‘Toh bolo 'Hathi Ghoda palki Jai Kanhaiya Lal Ki’.
