The Pondicherry rupees!

Bank of Indo-China (BIC) banknotes make their debut in the Numizon catalog for the first time with this new category dedicated to banknotes issued for French Trading stations in India.

These 9 exceptional notes were issued from 1875 to 1945 and have been preserved from the ravages of time and history for our greatest happiness. Some of these notes, known to only a few units, have become real museum pieces and are invaluable. These banknotes have been sought after for a very long time all over the world and are still lacking for many collectors who are already very advanced in collection. So, failing to have them one day perhaps in your collection, we invite you to discover or rediscover ... the Pondicherry rupees!
