1996 - Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose - Collectors Pack

This Post gives the details of the Error Coin that was withdrawn from circulation. For details of the coin in circulation see the next post.

In the year 1996 the Kolkata Mint released the commemorative of Neetaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Birth Centenary; until they realized that they were a year earlier. The actual Centenary Year was in the Year 1997. Hence they hastily withdrew that issue and termed it as an error coin. This is the first occurrence of withdrawing of a coin in Republic India Coinage. The second and the other time this occurred was in 2006 in the Rs 5 Tilak coin [the “ji” controversy forcing the mint to withdraw the coin.
