Very rare coin. The Gupta Empire was an ancient Indian empire, founded by Maharaja Sri Gupta, which existed at its zenith from approximately AD 240 to 550 and covered much of the Indian Subcontinent. The peace and prosperity created under the leadership of the Guptas enabled the pursuit of scientific and artistic endeavours. This period is called the Golden Age of India and was marked by extensive inventions and discoveries in science, technology, engineering, art, dialectic, literature, logic.
