Description

The National Museum is fortunate in having one of the richest collections of Indian coins in the world. Not only is the number an amazing one but the varieties represented, the number of rare coins, the clarity of legends, figures and symbols on each one of them, are all indeed specially noteworthy.

As an example can be given a magnificent Sassanian coins series which forms the Parrukh collection, that was specially studies and classified by the original owner of the series, from whom this was acquired by the National Museum, along with a detailed manuscript of an almost completed catalogue, with only the scholarly introduction to be added, which was made available with the original coins as more than a classified list.

The National Museum is no commencing a programme of producing a number of important catalogues to describe the rich treasures of each category of art objects in the Museum. In the numismatic section the first catalogue taken up is of the Gupta gold coins, and this would be followed up by other Gupta coins and, subsequently, by other varieties of coins, in convenient batches, according to dynasty, date and geographical distribution.
