The kolaga was found while ploughing the gomala land of the village panchayat.
The items found in the kolaga date back to the period of the East India Company.
The value of these coins is estimated to be around Rs. 2,500 each. One "kadaga" (bracelet), four small umbrellas, two silver waistbands, copper pieces, and precious stones, all worth Rs. 75,000, were also found in the kolaga.
The Assistant Commissioner, Shimoga Sub-division, Prabhakar Sharma, and the Tahsildar, Chandrasekhar, took these items into their possession after conducting an inquiry in the presence of the villagers.
Mr. Sharma told presspersons here on Thursday that the artefacts would be handed over to the Department of Museums and Archaeology for maintenance.
The artefacts were displayed at the Deputy Commissioner's office here on Thursday.
