Rare gold fanam minted by the Dutch VOC company in Tuticorin, ca.1658-1779, South-Eastern India (Herrli #3.07.01)

Degenerate Kali with the Tanjore rosette on the breast / Stylized and angular Ranga Rau, transormed into a decorated geometric design. 6mm, 0.35 grams. Tuticorin mint. Herrli #3.07.01; Krause KM #48 (150$ in XF).

The Dutch VOC company received the right to strike fanams in Tuticorin from Tanjore. Krause dates these coins to ca.1785-1792. It seems that these coins were struck over a longer period of time, though. The coins are slightly debased, the purity of these coins seems to range from about 14 karats to 18 karats. Rare little coins!
