04-Jan-2019: Happy New Year to all the readers. Thank you for helping me keeping the blog up to date with various comments.

In a bonanza or making it heavier on pockets, the Mumbai Mint has opened bookings for Paika Bidroha and Atal Bahari Vajpayee coins. I couldn't find the Mint Booking Advert, maybe in some other news papers. However the bookings are open on Mint Website.

Booking are Open from 4-Jan-2019 to 4-April-2019. The Atal Bahari Vajpayee Proof is at 2825 and UNC at 2615. The Paika Bidroha Proof is at 2825 and UNC at 2615.

  11. This is weird... I JUST booked a coin called "KUMBH SNAN SILVER SOUVENIR COIN - 40 gram weight / 999 purity - (Limited Edition)" from Mumbai Mint's website (order # ORD2018946). I came here to check if this coin was mentioned on the blog. It wasn't. So I went back to the Mumbai Mint site to check and give you guys more details... except that now I cannot find that listing there anymore!!! I swear I just paid the money and completed the transaction minutes ago and also got an email confirming the order number!!!! Funny. Didn't know limited edition would be so limited that it's gone in minutes!

    1. It is not a coin in numismatic language. It is more of a token. I am not sure if online booking of such token is possible. It would be the first time. Generally these are sold at specific outlets.

      Delete
    2. Hello Admin.. I booked this token online on Mumbai Mint website but after the website changes, I am not able to see the order details on the order page of the mint. Tried reaching out to mint but most of my follow up mails go unanswered

      Delete
    3. @Soham: I had similar experience. Not sure if its a technical glitch. Fingers crossed. Lot of regular collectors are not sure if these tokens can be booked online. Lets see if we get lucky.
