Vintage Eight Anna - Ceramic Coins
Coins that were called 'Annas' were used in the era before India's independence. Our parents and grandparents often refer to these as the good old days when many a thing was bought with just 1 anna! These coins survived the partition but were made redundant in 1957 - a significant year since it marks when Kerala joined the Republic of India.
Viakerala has taken this motif and made it into a Collector's Edition - Vintage Annas Coins that you can keep as a memoir of old Indian currency. The coins are handmade by women in self help groups across Dharavi, and hand glazed before firing in a clay oven. The design and production has been painstakingly managed over a period of six months from our small studio in Cochin. The end result is a beautiful piece that you will love!
Viakerala Annas in Ceramic make the perfect gift for any occasion - a very unique piece that is made in a limited edition by Viakerala. We highly recommend this for history buffs and fans of numismatics.
