- weight of 1 fanam varies from 0.33 to 0.55 grams (weight of 2 fanams - 1 gram)
- This type of fanam was minted by the Dutch in Cochin but continued to be minted after the Dutch left and Cochin became a British protectorate. There is no good way to tell the difference between the Indo Dutch and the Princely state of Cochin's 'puthen panam' (new fanam) issues.
