Chandragupta II (Vikramaditya) began issuing lead coins after he conquered Gujarat, following the existing coinage of the Western Kshatrapas whom he defeated. Chandragupta II's lead coins are much rarer than those of his successors Kumaragupta and Skandagupta.
 
Please note that lead coins of the Gupta emperors are difficult to find in good condition. This heavy specimen has Chandragupta II's royal name Vikrama clearly visible.
 
Rare and CHOICE.
