head> PORTUGUESE INDIA COINS The State of India, also referred as the Portuguese State of India or simply Portuguese India, was a colonial state of the Portuguese Empire founded six years after the discovery of a sea route to the Indian subcontinent by the Kingdom of Portugal. The capital of Portuguese India served as the governing center of a string of Portuguese fortresses and settlements scattered along the Indian Ocean. After 1510, the capital of the Portuguese viceroyalty was transferred to Velhas Conquistas (Old Conquests area) of present-day Goa and Damaon. Present-day Bombay (Mumbai) was part of Portuguese India as “Bom Baim” until it was ceded to the British Crown in 1661, who in turn leased Bombay to the East India Company.
