Add the excitement and history of the world’s smallest gold coin – struck at least 370 years ago in medieval India – to your collection! These tiny gold Bele coins measure a mere 2-3 mm in diameter and contain just .04 grams of gold. They were produced for the southern Vijayanagara Empire of the 14th-17th centuries – the final widespread Hindu-based empire in India.

These fascinating coins were the smallest denomination gold coins of this great empire – and are said to be the smallest gold coins in the world! Each one features a design honoring the royal insignia of a boar, sun, moon and dagger. They circulated centuries ago during the last great Indian Empire... and, given their size, it’s amazing that they survived for collectors today! Act now to own this charming conversation piece at an affordable price, complete with a FREE 4X magnifier.
