The Indian Silver Half Rupee was one of a wild mix of foreign coins that circulated during the first days of modern Australia. These are known as ‘Coins of the Proclamation Era’. Used by the earliest European settlers, and therefore genuine artefacts of Australia’s earliest colonial period, the Coins of the Proclamation Era are hugely important from both an historical and a numismatic perspective.
