Comments

During the early year of production, this silver Bath coin face the problem of counterfeiting, so the mint edited a small point of inscription at 4 o'clock reverse. The "short tailed ๕" coins are minted only in early years so they are more uncommon than the "long tailed ๕".

The mint started adding the date to track the number of coins in circulation in RS120.

There are many minor varieties within the inscriptions.
