H. the Nizam of Hyderabad's mint, ordered coin presses from Greenwood and Batley of Leeds. These presses, to strike coins of one, half, quarter and eighth rupee (2 annas), were dispatched in February 1906. The manufacturers made dies and struck ‘proving pieces' to test the equipment and to 'prove' the efficiency of the minting presses to the purchasers. Proving pieces for each of the four coin sizes One Rupee, Half Rupee, Quarter Rupee and 2 Annas each bear the same designs. Thomas Green Wood and John Batley established the partnership in 1856. They were electrical Mechanical engineers who specialised in manufacturing small arms and ammunition at the Albion Foundry, Leeds. They later moved to the Albion Works, Armley, Leeds, where this proving piece was struck. They supplied coining presses and associated machinery to several foreign governments (firstly; China in 1887: at Tientsin).
