One of my favorite coins (I love elephants). This is a one year issue as a business strike though there are proofs and gilt proof of this date and 1804. The 192 stands for 1/192 Rixdollar. Value for regular issues U$2 to US$50 for VG to XF examples. Uncirculated business strikes are rare and bring far more.
