In Rajura, India, Labourers working on the foundation of a building stumbled upon a copper pot containing 554 coins, possibly from the Mughal era (16th-18th century).
554 coins were obtained from the copper pot. The cops later took the coins to a local jeweller in Virur who verified those to be made of gold and copper alloy. The combined weight of coins was around 2 kg.
The cops have assumed that coins belong to the Mughal era, but verification by a numismatist is yet to be done. Police have notified the tehsildar, SDO and archaeological department about the discovery.
