Madras Presidency Coins

Madras, also known as Fort St George, was founded in 1640. It was the first territorial acquired by East India Company and it was the oldest among all the three presidencies (Madras, Bombay and Bengal). Madras Presidency was also known as Madraspatinam or Chinapatinam. The company obtained a small piece of land just outside the walls of Fort St George and started building a mint on March 1, 1640.
