The Provisional Government of Azad Hind was the Indian nationalist
Government-in-exile that controlled some small parts of India in the
1940s, before India became and independent nation in 1947. They played a
very active role in the fight against the British Empire and were a
worldwide reference for their nonviolent protests against the British
occupation. They even produced some coins to promote their political
agenda. These coins were struck right before India achieved its
independence from Great Britain.
