As part of the 70th anniversary of India's independence - marked by the UK/India Year of Culture - this exhibition, drawn from the Fitzwilliam’s world-class numismatic collection, will explore the history of India through coins produced from the 4th century BC until recent times. Cultural, religious, economic and political developments are richly illustrated by the coins on show.

They focus on representative periods of India’s history, ending with a display of banknotes and coins produced since India's independence in 1947. 

This exhibition forms part of the University of Cambridge Museums’ India Unboxed programme.
