King Chikka Devaraja Wodeyar issued One hand-struck Kasu coin each year of his reign (1673-1704) indicating the completion of one year of his rule. Thus the Kannada numeral 1 was struck on the coin in the year 1674. Similarly in 1675 he issued a coin with the numeral 2 (in Kannada) indicating that he completed the second year of his rule in the Indian state of Mysore.
