Note
Exemplaire provenant de la vente NGSA IV (décembre 2006), 698.

This gold mohur of 15 rupees dated AH 1184 (1770), regnal year 9, bears the name of the Mughal Emperor ‘Alamgir.  The striking of this coin by the British - in the name of the emperor but without his authorization - caused offence to the Mughal court and all but a very small number of examples were withdrawn from circulation and melted down for restriking into coins with more conventional legends.
