We believe the word fanam was first used in the twelve century. Many Southern Indian states issued small gold coins called Fanams between about 1700 to about 1830.
Fanams were the smallest gold coins issued by any of the Indian States, we give below an approximation of their weights and dimensions, followed by coins offered for sale. We are not currently able to catalogue our fanams, and they are offered on a random selection basis.
States which issued gold fanams include Maratha, Mysore, Cochin, Coorg or Kurg, Travancore, Negapatnam (for circulation in Ceylon), Tuticorin, and the Mughal Empire.
