Here are examples of coins of the India Republic. I purchased these coins 28 years ago at M.A. Storck Inc. in Portland, ME. At that time I was collecting coins of India. Since then, I have branched out to collecting world, USA coins and paper, as well as rare and unusual medals. I have included photographs of some of the India coins from my collection.
