Coins in India were issued in the of denominations of one rupee, half rupee , quarter rupee and two annas (all in silver), and 1/12 anna ,half pice, quarter anna, one anna, two anna and four annas (all in copper) during his reign .
In 1911, on quite a few denominations of coins issued the King was shown wearing a robe with a small elephant on it. Unfortunately, the trunk of the elephant appeared to be like the snout of a pig and it’s legs were depicted as short and stout due to space constraints on the coin surface. The overall appearance was that of a pig which would have been offensive to the sensibilities of some religions. These coins termed the “Pig coins” were withheld from circulation and reissued with a proper elephant design.
