SYMBOLS COMMON TO ASTAMANGALA SLABS AND COINS.

THE MUSEUM ASTAMANGALA SLAB.

symbol on series C coins and Astamangalas

The Astamangala slab has many representation of Aminals, flowers, and symbols. These can be traced to the symbols found on coins. Most of these  are found on the silver kahapanas minted in India and perhaps in the Island too. These are found on coins of all periods Early and  late Anuradapura  period and Pollonanaruva, Dambedeniya and  Kotte periods.I have placed some coins only up to perhaps 6 Cent AD.
