Silver coins are possibly the oldest mass-produced form of coinage. Silver has been used as a coinage metal since the times of the Greeks. The earliest coins in the world were minted in the kingdom of Lydia in Asia Minor around 600 BC.
Silver is a precious metal because it is rare and valuable, and it is a noble metal because it resists corrosion and oxidation. Silver has traditionally served, with gold, as the metal used in coins. As a precious metal, silver is rare and valuable, making it a convenient store of wealth and investment. In the past, people accumulated their wealth in the form of silver coins; today, they invest in investment-grade silver bullion, as they have a high value to weight ratio.
In India the word came from, the Sanskrit word rūpyakam which means "wrought silver" or a coin of silver. By the time the British East India Company set itself up in India in the 1600s, Sher Shah’s silver rupiya had already become the popular standard currency in the country. Despite many attempts to introduce the sterling pound in India, the rupaiya grew in popularity and was even exported as a currency to other British colonies.
The earliest coins of India are called the punch-marked coins. These were small pieces of silver of a specified weight, punched with several dies, each carrying a symbol like Lakshmi, Ganesh Ji, Tri Murti. As Lord Ganesh is considered to grant success and destroyer of evils and obstacles. Goddess Lakshmi means Good Luck to Hindus. She is the goddess of prosperity, wealth, purity, generosity, and the embodiment of beauty, grace, and charm and Trimurti the great triad of Hindu gods comprising Brahma – the Creator, Vishnu – the Sustainer , and Shiva – the destroyer.
