British India - Madras Presidency; for the East India Company. The first of these were contracted in 1802 and dated 1803. This is a proof issue with some impairment but original with nice surfaces - scarce. Presentation pieces in proof were also struck in silver, gilt gold & gold.
This is an issue of the Soho Mint, Birmingham England by Matthew Boulton (his son to be exact). The twenty Cash pieces were struck at 36 to the pound.
East India Company issue, from the wreck of the Admiral Gardner. The Admiral Gardner was on her sixth voyage to the East as a regular East India Company vessel, and commanded by William Eastfield, when she was wrecked off South Foreland on the Goodwin Sands on 25 January 1809. She was carrying 54 tons of specially minted 10 & 20 cash copper coinage struck at the Soho Mint, Birmingham.

This is a very nice 20 Cash coin.The ones that turn up are the ones that have been cleaned after their recovery from the wreck of the Admiral Gardner.
