The Koh-i-Noor meaning “Mountain of Light” in Persian was diamond confiscated from Duleep Singh in 1850 by the East India Company and became part of the British Crown Jewels when Queen Victoria, who was proclaimed Empress of India in 1877. The diamond is currently set into the crown of Queen Elizabeth II and on display at the Tower of London. This Koh-i-Noor Coronation Coin minted in fine silver is set with a uniquely cut and polished diamond cut from the lands of the famed Koh-i-Noor stone.
Allegedly the Koh-i-Noor carries with it a myth which touches men, but not women. The myth surrounding the possession of the Koh-i-Noor found its roots in an early Hindu scripture reciting the first appearance of the stone in 1306: "He who owns this diamond will own the world, but also know all its misfortunes. Only God, or a woman, may wear it with impunity."
