The new INR 10 Coin

The new INR 10 Coin

I remember last time using a 10 INR Coin was when I was in 6th standard and had stolen from my mom’s coin collection. Well, I was a bit mischievous. Never mind.

Now you can get hands on one yourself. RBI has announced the launch of new Rs. 10 Coin and ironically, this time it is a bimetallic Coin. The first bimetalic coin after a long time.

As the introduction of coins of denominations (of Re.1, Rs. 2, Rs.5) the notes of the subsequent denominations gradually vanish from the market and coins become the numero uno exchanger. Hence, similar effect is expected that Rs. 1o note will be phased out slowly.

The coin really looks beautiful and it is designed by NID, Ahmedabad. But there is a visible cut that makes it a little less flawless. Hence, people might have mixed reactions on the dezign front. The metals used are a mixture of Nickel & Bronze for the golden side, and Ferrous steel in the inside.

      Well looks can be deciptive, isnt it. The year is looking like 2006 in this image bcoz of the cut on the numeric 8. The year written on the coin is year 2008.
