Leave a Comment
Indian currency notes of the denomination Rs.5, Rs. 10, Rs. 20, Rs. 50, Rs. 100, Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 though have different values but have one thing in common. Our ‘Father of the Nation’, Mahatma Gandhi’s picture is in each of the Indian currency notes. Almost, everybody is very much aware of that.

But, if I ask you to tell me in how many Indian coins have you seen the picture of Mahatma Gandhi?

Many might not have seen a single such coin but few might have observed one or two. However, numismatist will be fully aware of all such coins.

Very less people know that there are more than 5 Indian coins in which picture of Mahatma Gandhi is shown either individually or in a group. The coins range from Rs. 10 coin to 20 Paise coin. Maximum of these are commemorative Indian coins. Here, I will be showing you the list of Indian coins which have Mahatma Gandhi’s picture on them.
