Rare Coins At Thanjavur Art Gallery - India

While I was at Thanjavur Palace, I visited the Art Gallery located in the Durbar hall. I was pleasantly surprised to see plenty of old and fascinating coins. Some of them were as old as 300 B.C! A picture is worth a thousand words, so I am posting everything I took pictures of. Some of the coins were not well preserved, and sometimes my photography sucks. I've tried my best to post good pictures of these rare coins, in no particular order. There were also other items like Chola Sculptures and Mudhumakkal Thazhi in the art gallery, but this post is all about coins.
