A remarkably well-preserved example of coinage which was commonly used in Australia prior to reaching the point of producing our own currency. Rupees were also commonly traded and recognised worldwide due the myriad of trade routes which spanned the globe in the colonial era.

Philip Gidley King's proclamation in 1800 attributed the Rupee with a value of 2 and a half Shillings (2s and 6d).
