Abstract: Eleven silver and twenty-five copper coins of British rule (1857-1947 A.D.) have been studied and their elemental compositions have been estimated using non-destructive and simultaneous multi-elemental EDXRF technique in order to verify the effectiveness of this technique for analysis of coins on routine basis. The computer code AXIL was employed to obtain the elemental concentrations from the EDXRF spectra. The obtained results are presented.
