Next up is the little silver Two Annas (1/8 Indian Rupee)...

2 Annas = 15mm diameter...1.45grams..Edge plain...silver .917..KM#505.
Unlike the Copper/Bronze denominations, which used the original reverse design of the Victora series, the silver coinage had a new re-designed and more simplified reverse. See details below...


All 2 Anna coins were minted at Calcutta with no mintmark..
1903-1910....
Key Date 1910 with lowest mintage 1,603,811


Here's my example (nicely toned)
King Edward VII 1907....2 Annas..Mintage 22,144,648..KM#505...

Wow! I never would have guessed it was that small. I was thinking it was much larger. Thank you for the comparison photo.
