The correct answer to this question is 178 coins. Paise coins were a currency unit, which equaled one-hundredth of an India rupee. P is the symbolization for paise. These coins were introduced on April 1, 1947, after the 1955 adoption of the Indian metric system for coins.
Since then, paise coins have been demonetized and can no longer be used as a legal form of tender. In India, Rupee is the official currency. The Reserve Bank of India controls the distribution of Rupees. Rupees date back to Ancient India and the times of the 6th Century BCE, where it was also used along with Lydian starters and Chinese wen.
