News Section

19-Nov-2017: Please be aware even when Buying Proof or Mint sets. As a new practise Fake Dealers are removing the Genuine coins from Proofs / UNC Sets and replacing these with Fake. Generally when buying Mint Sets, one tends to belive the coins are also Genuine. This need not be the case. I am putting up the images of such a set from eBay.

लगता है के ५ रूपया,अल्लाहाबाद हाई कोर्ट का  सिक्का चलन मई आ गया है।  यह सिक्का हैदराबाद मिंट ने जारी किया है।  अस्चर्य कि बात यह है के RBI द्वारा कोई प्रेस रिलीज़ नहीं है।

My guess is the additional gateway fees charged is refunded

मुझे मिंट से ३०० रूपया का रिफंड मिला। अभी पता नहीं कौनसे मिंट ने रिफंड दिया और क्यों। लगता है गेटवे पेमेंट चार्जस रिफंड होगया है।

03-Mar-2017: Received my Dr Radhakrishna sets. The strikes are good for Kolkata Mint. However the gumming meant the cover got damaged. After quite a few years, the package has reverted to older blister pack without any flip.

मेरा डॉ राधाकृष्ण सेट्स मिल गया। काफी अच्छा स्ट्राइक है। लेकिन पैकेजिंग मई गोंड की वाज से सुब ख़राब हो गया।

23-Feb-2017: As reported by collectors in comments, Dispatched of Dr Radhakrishna sets have begun by Kolkata mint.
It is a different matter that dispatched of other sets like Chinmayananda, BHEL and Tata are not yet complete.
जैसा की आप ने पढ़ा होगा डॉ राधाकृष्ण के कॉइन सेट डिस्पैच होना चालू हो गए है। यह और बात है की पुराने सेट जैसे की स्वामी चिन्मयानन्द , भेल और टाटा का डिस्पैच अभी तक पूरा नहीं हुआ है।

11-Feb-2017:
A heart felt thanks to all the readers and contributors. Quite a few have taken efforts to post comments as to when they received the set along with date they booked. The format of the site is blog and hence it is difficult for other readers to like a specific comment to show appreciation, I would say that most who follow this blog appreacite it.

Although Kolkata mint is calling and informing deliverys, a delay of nearly 18-20 months is simply unacceptable.

I finally got my Swami Chinmayananda sets yesterday. No sign of other sets.

सभी रीडर्स और कंट्रिब्यूटर्स को शुक्रिया।  काफी लोगो ने कमेंट मई अपना आर्डर नंबर लिखा है। इससे दूसरा लोगो को अपना आर्डर कभी आ रहा है उसकी जानकारी मिलते है।

कोल्कता मिंट करीबन १८-२० महीनो बाद डिलवेरी कर रहा है जो के अनूचित है।

मेरा स्वामी चिन्मयानंद सेट आखिर आ गया कल।  बाकि सेट्स के कोई जानकारी नहीं है।

There are 3 new sets doing rounds in the market. The Commonwealth Games Single Coins of Denomination Rs 5 and Rs 2. These sets were apperantly minted during the Games for distribution to degnataries / participants. However these was not done. The coins have die of Kolkata Mint but were struck and packaged by Hyderabad Mint. As Mumbai Mint was co-ordinating the issue, these were in custody of Mumbai Mint. In the First ICCG Expo held from  20 to 22 Jan, there was a counter from Mumbai Mint and the sets were sold for the first time.
The second set is 2 coin set of Mata Vaishno Devi, these were minted for distribution amongst employees. Some sets have made way to the hands of dealers and collectors.
If anyone has more info please share.

आज कल बाजार मे ३ नया सेट्स के चार्चा हो रही है।  कॉमन वेल्थ गेम्स  सिंगल कॉइन्स डेनोमिनेशन Rs ५ और Rs २ । जानकर लोगो का कहना है की यह सेट्स २०१० गेम्स के दौरान उच लोगो और कहल खिलाडी मई बाटने के लिए बनाया गए थे। लेकिन ऐसे नहीं हुआ। इन सिक्का के खासियत यह है की इनके डाई कोल्कता मिंट कि है और इसे हैदराबाद मिंट ने मींटिंग किया है. लेकिन इनका डिस्ट्रीब्यूशन मुम्बई मिंट कर रहा है. २० जनुअरी २०१७  मई को कॉइन एक्सहिबिशन I.C.C.G ने आयोजित किया था उसमे र.बी.ई का स्टाल भी था और र.बी.ई ने फैले बार इसे बेचा।

दूसरा कॉइन सेट है २ कॉइन्स सेट माता वैष्णव देवी का, इन को माता देवी ट्रस्ट के एम्प्लाइज मई बाटने के लिए मुम्बई मिंट ने बनाया था।  लेकिन कुछ सेट्स डीलर्स और कलेक्टर्स के पास पाउच गया है.

अगर किसी के पास कुछ और जानकारी हो तो शेयर करे

Like few issues of recent times, Even the National Archives of India looks to be put into Circulation without any press release. It seems that coins got distributed in different areas than Mumbai and Kolkata ... dealers have not yet got their hands on the stuff yet. It looks to be Noida Mint.

जैसा की कुछ सिक्कए के साथ हाल मैं हो रहा है वैसे ही नेशनल आर्काइव्ज वाले सिक्कए के साथ हुआ है. कॉइन्स सर्कुलेशन मैं आ गए है और कोई प्रेस्स रिलीज़ नहीं है. लगता है नॉएडा मिंट ने इस सिक्कको बनाया है.

    5. Thanks for the confirmation Mr. Goel. It means that the Mumbai Mint is sticking to its words.. Counting Days for the Sets.. Meanwhile a quick ask, on your Order Date, if you could share that. That would give us a guestimate for the respective orders and their delivery timelines. It's been a Homeguards job otherwise :) And Also, did the Mint send any e-mail with the dispatch information? Thanks for the details in advance!

    1. Most likely different prefix or inset. Else fakes. There are known errors in older series where same number is printed twice.

    4. How the refund will be processed & whether the refund is applicable on all orders of this sets??

      Secondly as explained by admin there might be different prefixes & insets though of same number. Also older series notes before 2005 had no dates, so it is always possible that we get same number, prefix & inset notes of same governor but there is chance that they are printed in different years. Isn't it admin?
