Regular price £1,750
Regular price Sale price £1,750

India, British India, George V (1911-36), restrike silver Proof Rupee, 1911C, type B, bust of the king wearing Order of the Indian Empire with naturalistic elephant, 11.75g (SW 8.13). Good extremely fine.

Engraved by Bertram MacKennal, the first issue (type A) of the 1911 Rupee included an indistinctly drawn elephant on the chain of the king's Order of the Indian Empire. To some it looked like a pig, which caused offence. The issue was withdrawn and many were melted down while a new obverse die was cut with a more realistic elephant to start the process of replacing them (Type B).
