Hi,

I am new to this site and have recently found some old ancient looking coins, but have absolutely no idea what they are.

I have included pictures of them below!

Does anyone recognize any? Thank you ahead of time!

I can recognize the bottom right as Roman empire, but I can't quite make out the legends. The bottom left is the Indian state of Kutch ((ca) 1870-1930)) The upper left may be Delhi Sultanate.

Please give us better photographs and I think that we can narrow everything down:

Individual cropped pictures of each side, and a weight and diameter of each one.

The Roman might be Marcus Aurelius with VOTA reverse (sacrificing over a tripod). Yep, better pics would help.

Only one of the coins appear to be ancient. You will need to take a closer picture of that one. Also in the future only post one or two coins at a time.

Thank you all so much for the quick and positive comments, and welcoming!! It is crazy how fast some of these have been identified (and pretty exciting too!). I will make sure to post better pictures and their weights soon!

The Roman coin looks very much like this one on VCoins.

And lastly, which one of the users identified as a coin from the Indian state of Kutch 1870-1930. While the markings on these coin seem to match, I wasn't able to find this EXACT coin just yet.

It is roughly 1.5 cm in diameter.

To me the portrait resembles Marcus Aurelius more so than Antoninus Pius. For comparison, the OP coin lightened, below, with various VOTA varieties of MA.

Thank you so much for all the responses!! I am still very surprised at how fast we were able to figure out what these coins are (They are very unique and I would never have found out by myself). This site is DOPE, I like it.

Thanks again everyone!!
