Coins from India

Countries and territoriesIndia › India

India officially gained its independence from British Rule in 1947, and the country later became a Republic in 1950. Even though the British left, areas occupied by the French and Portuguese still existed; while the French left in 1954, the Portuguese were forced out in 1961, freeing all of India from European rule. Currently, India has one of the largest economies in the world, and has the second highest population at over 1,354,000,000. Read more
