    hailed on coins

    A bit of background: 'The days of the Viceroys' means something more specific here - the time in the history of India when it was governed by a succession of Viceroys. (Queen Victoria - who is hailed on coins with the abbreviation 'Ind. Imp.'['Empress of India'] never actually went there.)

    Please explain the highlighted ones.

    "To be hailed on coins...Empress of India" - identified as ... Empress of India.

    Ind. Imp. = India Imperator [Latin]
