The Rs. 2.8 annas note is rare to find today and is a priced possession
All of us know that banknotes are available in nominal values of Rs. 5, Rs. 10, Rs. 20, Rs. 50, Rs. 100, Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000. Rupee coins are usually available in denominations of Re. 1, Rs. 2 and Rs. 5.
But do you know that the Indian government had introduced the exotic Rs. 2 and 8 annas note in November 1917. The issuance of these notes was discontinued in January 1926 on cost benefit considerations. These notes first carried the portrait of King George V. The Rs. 2.8 annas note—a prized possession— is today said to be worth more than Rs. 2.5 lakh.
