This is a very fine and scarce coin struck during the reign of Krishnaraja Wodeyar III, the longest ruling Wodeyar king. Krishnaraja laid the foundation on which his successors built and transformed Mysore into a modern and model state. Another major significance of his ascendancy was that he was the first Wodeyar king to assume the rule of Mysore after a gap of nearly 40 years.
