Comments There is some confusion over the motif on the obverse of this series. Mitchiner has identified it as a head over an elephant. However, the best coins show clearly that a lion atop an elephant is intended, and the stylization of that motif can be seen in less clear coins such as this one. The small denomination coins of Ratna Deva are very rare and hard to come by.
