This section gives details of New Coins bookings Adv released in 2018 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

16-Feb-2018:
Bookings open for Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya and Shrimad Rajchandra. The Proof is at Rs 2734 and 2735 and UNC at 2372 and 2374. The bookings are open from 16-Feb-2018 to 31-Mar-2018. It seems these days Kolkata Mint is not advertising in Times of India. They may be releasing the Adv in some other papers.




28-Jan-2018:
The reduction in taxes means that the Counter sale coin sets from Mumbai and Kolkata Mint have reduced the prices. The Kolkata Mint prices are still way high than market rates. Some of the sets listed by Mint are available with dealers for less than 1/4 the price. It is best to avoid buying any coin set from Kolkata Mint. The Mumbai mint prices are more reasonable, barring few initial issues. Coins like Mata Vaishno devi are now available from Counter sale at a price less than original issue price.

  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)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    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

  3. I had booked a Proof coin '175th Birth Anniversary of JN TATA' by online booking of Kolkata mint on 5-Oct-2015.

Mails to calmint@spmcil.com yield no response, calls to their numbers 03324014133/03324014132/03328683889 have not been answered. Kindly advise who could I approach for resolution.
