The Indian pice was the smallest unit of currency in India during British rule (1858-1947). There were 192 pices in a rupee. These coins were not used after 1947. Most of the ones that we have are bronze and are from the early 20th century (from about 1912 through 1930) - although some are earlier and some later. They all appear to be bronze and feature a nicely aged patina and a large center hole. The hole is really part of the coin and not drilled afterwards as with some coins used for jewelry.
Each measures about 7/8 inch in diameter and the center hole is about 7/16 in diameter.
