Abstract: The radioactivity induced in the coins from Satvahanas, Ahmadshah Bahamani, Gujrat Sultan, Nizamshahi and Marathas after (n,γ) reactions for the elements of interest is measured on multichannel analyzer coupled to high purity germanium detector and percentage of these elements is determined by comparator method of NAA. All these coins are found to be copper based with the presence of As, Sb, In, Au, Sn and Mn.

Key words: Neutron activation analysis, Ancient coins, Elemental analysis, India
