Surat, India (Mughal Empire), 1 rupee, Aurangzeb (1658-1707), AH1113 (1702), housed in promotional box with the coin encased in a 24K gold-plated silver medal (12 oz.) showing the Taj Mahal, which also appears in a color-photo porcelain tile on the top of the box. 11.11 grams (coin only), the set 8-1/2" x 7" x 2-3/4". Beautiful "jewelry box" display whose least impressive element is the coin itself, even though it is not a bad specimen, with full details and minimal corrosion, nicely toned, the medal stamped "070" on the edge as from a limited edition of 350 sets. Recovered from: "Taj Mahal treasure," sunk ca. 1702 off Sri Lanka
