This section gives details of New Coins bookings Adv released in 2016 and available for Booking. One has to directly book the coins from Mint. If you are a new reader, the article on booking coins from Mint may be of help. If you are booking for the first time, read the article here. or watch the Video on YouTube by Mr Sanil Koottala

In what looks to be a first, Very Strangely, the Mint has increased the price of current bookings that are open by Rs 37, 30, 31 and 25. Not sure what led to the price change, but this could be more due to change in VAT rates imposed by Maharashtra Government recently.
The Mata Vaishno Devi Proof at Rs 4555 up by 37 compared to Rs 4518
The Mata Vaishno Devi UNC at Rs 3660 up by 30 compared to Rs 3630
The Nehru Proof at Rs 3761 up by Rs 31 compared to Rs 3760
The Nehru UNC at Rs 3107 up by Rs 25 compared to Rs 3082

Mumbai Mint has come up new booking. They are open from 26-Aug-2016 to 26-Oct-2016.
The much awaited booking for the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Coins is finally open. Along with the Jawaharlal Nehru - 125th Birth Anniversary.

  • Mata Vaishno Devi Coins are priced slightly higher as it is a 3 coin set. The Proof is at 4518 and the UNC at 3630
  • 125th Birth Anniversay of Jawaharlal Nehru. The Proof is at Rs 3730 and UNC at 3082. The prices are slightly up [Rs 30] compared to the previous Allahabad High court issue. However much higher [Rs 700] compared to the low prices of Kolkata Mint of the recent issues.

It also looks like Mumbai Mint has already struck some sets and the images of sets are up on the mint website as well.

Finally the Kolkata Mint has put out the correction for the Advert of 8-June-2016. The denomination of the Lala coins have been corrected.

The Kolkata Mint has opened the bookings [from 16-June-2016 to 16-Aug-2016]. The following sets are available
  • 125th Birth Anniversary of Dr S Radhakrishnan
  • 3rd Indo-Africa Summit
  • 150th Birth Anniversary of Lala Lajpat Rai
  • Birth Centenary of Rani Gaidinliu. 
The price for proof has come down to Rs 3013 from Rs 3700 for previous booking and for UNC has come down to Rs 2557 from Rs 3010. This may be a reflection of reduction in Silver Prices. This could also be due to poor off take of previous sets, given that there are quite a few floating in the market. It should also be eye opener for investor and Mint prices can go down there by reducing the value of previous issues. If you are booking the coins for the first time read this post.
There is a typo in the Booking Adv. The Lala Lajpat Rai coin is of denomination Rs 10 and not Rs 5 as put in the Adv.

The booking for Allahabad high court are open from Mumbai mint. The booking is open from 13-Mar to 13-May.
The price is same as previous issues. Proof St Rs 3700 and UNC at Rs 3010.

    1. It's Rs 10. The mint has made a typo in booking adv

  2. Hi
    I recently booked some 9 sets of proof coins via the online counter sale at the Mumbai Mint's website. The coins are listed with booking open date as June 20, 2016. However there is no booking closure date. How do we find out when the bookings will close and when the delivery would begin (I know it says delivery within 6 months from the close of booking, but that does not really say much if we don't know the closure date)

    1. The online counter sale works differently. There is no closure. It's till stock last. I.e. After completing normal bookings the extra sets are made available
