@anzel, any thoughts on JL? That might be the producer of this silver round.

I would say India rather than Nepal, because of the Hindu iconography, but can't say more than that.

Indian silver bullion round. 9.67 grams is an odd weight for a silver bullion piece - it's not a round number in the metric (grams), troy ounce or traditional Indian (tola) system of measurements.

All kinds of these privately-minted bullion items are coming out of India, many with religious designs. I suspect they serve a double purpose, as both a store of wealth and as "temple tokens" that can be used in Hindu household rituals.

Good points @seeker and @sal. That is Durga riding on the lion, right?
