The coin exhibition hosted at the Mint compound, Saifabad, from June 8th ended on the 13th.

The exhibition was held as part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations.

The Mint was established in 1903. The Princely State of Hyderabad was the first to be granted permission by the British to make its currency in its own province, and had established the Mint for that purpose. Until the Mint was established, coins were minted on huge stones, and the coins and the stones are also displayed in the exhibit, at Sultan Shahi in the Old City.

The Mint was also known for its exceptional calligraphic quality, and its machinery that was on par with the European mints.

The coins, the moulds to make the coins, the counter-weights and several other currency notes were on display.

The show was a hit among all the age groups and attracted huge crowds.
