Rana Bahadur Shah, 1777-1799.
My thread on this coin https://www.cointalk.com/threads/my-lightest-coin-at-just-0-04-grams.378036/
But this Nepalese coin is not associated with the Indian Fanam, but totally different denomination known as 1/128 of a Mohur, and 1 Mohur is 5.6 grams. They have also issued gold coins weighing the same 0.04g, being sold on Ma-shops.
Here are the numista entries. https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces77559.html
I wonder how many of those "foil" fanams i passed up might be otherwise Hmmm, gonna have to recheck a shop or 2.. the markup alone might be worth it lol
