Kutch is a district of Gujarat state in western India. In ancient times it was Saurashtra. Bhuj is the capital city. The political succession was Magadha, Maurya, Indo-Greek, Indo-Scythian, Western Satraps, Maitrakas, Charans, Kathis, Chavdas, Chalukyas, Vaghelas, and Jadehas, The three Jadehas were consolidated by Khengarji I, 1510-1585. His dynasty ruled until Indian independence in 1947.

By “Modern World Coins” we mean here, generally, the round, flat, shiny metal objects that people have used for money and still do. “Modern,” though, varies by location. There was some other way they were doing their economies, and then they switched over to “modern coins,” then they went toward paper money, now we’re all going toward digital, a future in which kids look at a coin and say “What’s that?” We’ll say: “We used to use those to buy things.” Kids will ask “How?” The main catalog reference is the Standard Catalog of World Coins, to which the KM numbers refer.
