During World War II, Gurkha regiments fought together with the British and allied troops against the Japanese. The spent cartridge cases were gleaned from the battlefields. General Shamshek Rama discovered these empty cartridge cases in a government warehouse behind the Tangal Palace and suggested in 1955 that they should be minted into coins as a way of paying tribute to the fallen and valiant Gurkha soldiers.
As the number of empty shells was limited, the 4 Paisa coins were issued for a period of only one year. The hole in the center was created through the elimination of the detonation plates of the cartridge cases.
