Trankebar became more and more integrated in the surrounding British-India. Here a monetary reform had removed the fanams/royalins and made the Madras rupee current in the British possessions throughout the Coromandel coast. The Madras rupee was made current in Trankebar in 1819. Therefor one and two Fano 1818 are the last silver coins from Trankebar.
