  3. I was going through your website. One of my acquaintance has chanced upon some old coins with him at his residence. He has solicited my help for appraising the same and to help him sell them. Can you provide me your email ID so that I can attach the pictures of the coins found. Awaiting a positive response in this regard.

    1. The last update in March was the design proposed was not accepted. There was an wider community to meet and finalise the design. No update after that. Given the back log of mints it may still happen.

    Thanks Admin. Would be happy to know your good name :). I am anticipating futher delays as now there is no response from Mr. Paul as well. I have been trying to reach him, since it's over a month past our initial discussion, and wanted to have a quick follow up. But presumably due to the snailing pace of procurement, courtesy IG Mint Kolkata; he must be getting multiple calls; and thus stopped responding. :)

  13. sir its gona be my first time online booking sets from kolkata mint , shall i book all 4 coins together or each coin seperatly ? i mean seperatly as booking each coin after 1-2 week gap ? then mint would send coins seperatly or all together ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you buy together,it will be good,as per me,as I bought first Ambedkar coin and then 3 days later,I bought 1965 Indo-Pak war coin,but when it comes about delivery it was between March 15-20 for Ambedkar coin and I received Indo-Pak coin Yesterday ��

      Even though wait for admin's reply too.

  14. If you book from same login ID, it's treated as same and no difference if you book single or multiple. Of late Kolkata mint is despatching set's individually. The booking done by DD offline are despatched first.

  16. Please Contact the Mumbai Mint Numbers given in their Website or here - 033-22703184 / 022-22663093. Generally they respond. If you don't seem to get a response on the first call, keep checking on the alternate numbers and they would pickup.

  26. Hello Sir,

    I have booked Bhel,Chinmayananda,Tata,Maulana Azad & Begum Akhtar sets from Kolkata Mint in Ist week of October 2015. I have called Kolkata mint many times, but did not get any response. Do you have any information regarding the dispatch schedule ?
    Thanks

    Replies
    1. BHEL and Tata despatch has not begun. Chinmayananda only recently... So depending on when you booked it may take a while... I am yet to get mine, booked online first day. The other 2 despatch has begun and coming to close, hopefully you should get your sets soon. Drop a mail to mint for safety. Kolkata mint takes quite a bit of time, one particular set I got after 2 years.

      Email: calmint@spmcil.com -> No body responds

  28. Hello Sir

    1. I have already asked this question, but again :- what would be the best way to contact Kolkata Mint ?

    2. I have ordered coin sets from Kolkata Mint on 27th July. In the status column of the order, it says "Check Out". In the previous orders it says "Trans Success". So what is the meaning of "Check Out" ?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Check out means that there was some error and payment was not made. Check your card statement, if it shows debit you are fine. Keep a record of this and mail the mint. If it's not on card, rebook again.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for your reply. I have checked, it has been debited from my account. Now should I mail them ?

      Delete
    3. Yes mail them more as safety. You may not get a response. Send reminder every 10 days.
      I had a similar problem couple of years back and I did get the sets.
      The status will keep showing check out and will not change.

  35. I am a novice in coin collection. I was trying to catalogue coin collection of my father, using data available on various web sites. It is observed that Reverse side of almost all coins in the list (excel file ) provided in your blog is given as Asoka pillar. But in most of other sites including standard catalogue of world coins and RBI monetary museum, Asoka pillar side is shown as Obverse. Which is correct. Please clarify.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Obverse and reverse is ongoing debate even internationally and opinions are divided.
      In Indian coinage, all the commemorative are clearly notified by RBI on reverse and obverse. Even on definitive if you read the RBI press release, you can see the denomination side is obverse and emblem side is reverse.
      So don't be bothered by definition

  38. I have various old 100 rupee notes. What agencies are there in India for grading them?
    searching Online, i found that PMG is poplar but they dont have submission center in India.
    How can one submit to them for grading from India?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. PMG does have submission in India. However with around $30-50 in costs, it does not make economical sense to get them valued as most India old notes are in the range of Rs 500-Rs 1000.
