[1] Available in Diamond & "M" Mint Mark

[2] Doubt exists on Noida Mint mark of Rajiv Gandhi. The Mint Mark is neither Diamond or Round, but inbetween. Thus its easily mistaken for Noida Mint, however its Mumbai Mint Coin

[3] 1994 - International Year of the Family, Doubt exists on Calcutta Mint. I have few coins, however these are Mumbai Mint with Die Clog on mint mark. Faint Diamond Mark is seen on magnification.

[4] 2002 - Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan, Doubt exists on Calcutta Mint. Few Die Clog coins were found in the sealed RBI bag of Mumbai Mint coins.


[5] Quite a few Issues like ONGC and 150 Years of War were issued in Cupro Nickel in Proof Sets as well as Circulation Strikes. In these cases Circulation Strikes are rare to find and most dealers mis-sell broken UNC sets.

  2. 1992 commemorative coin "Land Vital Resource" in Rs 2 denomination is missed out in the above list. Request you to include the same.

    ReplyDelete
  3. @ Atul: This list is of Circulating Commemoratives. The "Land Vital" to my knowledge was never put into circulation. It was in Packages of 2 coins meant for distribution to dignitaries that never happened ... what ever you get from dealers is such broken set ... Other recent example would be Rs 2 of 150 yrs of Telecommunication ... I would classify them as Proof/UNC sets distinct from circulation coins
