This silver 1 Kori coin was issued by the semi-independent Indian state of Kutch.  The coin was issued in the name of  British king Edward VIII, who reigned for less than a year in 1936 before abdicating the throne in order to marry his love, Mrs. Wallace Simpson, an American divorecee.  The coin is dated both AD 1936 and 1992 in the Vikrama Samvat calendar.  Because of the short reign and limited overlap of the two calendars the coin could only have been struck for a few months in early 1936.   The thick, 17mm silver coin features the three symbols of Kutch: a trisul, a dagger, and a crescent moon, weighs 4.7 grams.
