Garland of Coins

Besides the transaction, the coins are found to be used as valued ornament also by the people from medieval period. There was a custom of offering garland of coins to the deities. Even the people used them in the form of a garland. There are some examples of them in this museum. The garlands worn by the people are often comprised of English coins circulated in India during English rule. They are found even today worn by the hill tribes of Magar, Gurung, Rai, Tharu and Tamang.
