Dear friends and respected seniors,
Firstly I would like to thank the President, General secretary and the executive committee of the South
Indian Numismatic Society for the honour you have conferred upon me in electing me to preside over
the 28th Annual conference being conducted at the historical city of Mysore, the cultural capital of
Karnataka. I shall take this as an opportunity to throw light on some untouched facets in the Madurai
Nayaka coinage.
The feudatories of Vijayanagara , especially the nayakas , issued wide variety of coinage with equally
interesting legends and motifs. In this presentation, an endeavor has been made to resolve the obscurity
in the legends pertaining to Madurai nayaka coins and also bring forward some new findings which
would reinforce the understanding of the history of Madurai nayakas.
