India 2011 - New rupee and paise coins
India 2011 - New series of paise and rupee coins
New circulating types:
Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee in July 2011 released a new series of coins with improved design and revised size in the denominations of 50 paise, Re.1, Rs.2, Rs.5, and Rs.10.
You can see some of these coins below:
The present series of coins of 50 paise, Rs. 1, 2, and 5 contain a flowery design and for Rs.10, the number of petals have been brought down to 10 in place of the existing 15 petals. The parallel lines on the obverse side of the Rs. 10 coin have been removed and the size of Ashok Pillar has been increased
The new coins are of user-friendly size and weight, with improved counterfeit resistance, and the security edging of these coins would be good for better recognition by visually challenged persons.
