Well , do you like a coin rather than a note ?
I prefer coins . I know they are heavy but they dont get damaged easily .
Now , The Indian Government has decided to come out with a TEN RUPEE COIN .
RBI is ready to issue a bimetallic 10 rupee coin.
The look: The obverse side has the lion capitol with numeral 10 and year of manufacture. On reverse side, a double line cross with a dot in each pellet of cross and denomination written in Hindi and English around. This design has been prepaed by National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad with the theme of Unity in Diversity. The outer side metal is Nickel-Bronze and the inner side metal is Ferrous Steel. The weight of the coin would be 8 grams and the diameter would be 28 mm.
The coins worth 70 million have already been minted till August 2008 so that means 7 million coins !!! . I wonder whats taking so much time to realease them .
