Comments A very interesting coin, as it features the Christogram JHS, which stands for Jesus Hominum Salvatorum, Jesus, saviour of men. How this came to be on the coin is an interesting story. Apparently a Brahmin by the name of Anand in the Dogra court converted to Christianity and then persuaded the Raja to engrave these letters on his coins as a way to please the British and to bring good fortune to the king.
