Comments According to Gupta and Hardaker, the Series VIb coins date to c. 270-175 BCE, the time of the great Mauryan emperor Ashoka and his successors. Ashoka, of course, was the emperor who spread the word of the Buddha throughout his empire.

The reverse of this coin normally has a mark that repeats one of the official marks on the obverse, except that it is smaller. This coin has the railed tree.
