The George VI one pice hole coin is a little unique in the British India coinage series. Firstly, of course, there is the hole which makes it stand out among other coins. Secondly, because of the hole there is no space to put the portrait of the king or queen of England. So the crown at the top represents the king and that side becomes the obverse. There are three major crown varieties in this item: the flat crown, round crown and high crown. You may see these three above to distinguish between the three variants.
