The details are as below;




Amongst the most mysterious coins of Republic India is the Rs 2 coin issued in 1992 with the National Land Conservation Week theme.
It was supposed to be released by Mr Sharad Pawar, however the coin was never put into general circulation. There were VIP & UNC sets minted that somehow reach the market.

The Results of an RTI Application determining true mintage of the coins.
The RTI Clearly shows that 380 sets were struck and given to RBI, but there is hardly any other record of these coins being put into circulation.
