150 rupee coin in India soon

For the first time in the country’s minting history, government will issue coins of Rs. 150, marking the number of years of taxation in India.

The special coins, to be released by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee before his Budget speech, will also be brought out in Rs. 5 denomination on the occasion of completion of 150 years, from 1860 to 2010, of the Income Tax department.

This is the first time that coins of Rs. 150 denomination are being minted by the government. The Department of Economic Affairs under the Finance Ministry recently notified the order.

The Rs. 150 coin, made of an alloy of Silver, Copper, Nickel and Zinc, will have an international design with ‘Satyameva Jayate’ and ‘India’ on the front side while a portrait of ‘Chanakya and lotus with honeybee’ on the reverse side.

    This is not at all correct to design the Rs 150/- coin, because while in future our budget will become higher than now. in this current situation am not seen the coins of Ps50/- instant of ps50/- we are using Rs1/- coin. if we will use again Rs150/- coin we will can’t see the coins of Rs1/- , Rs 2/- , Rs5/-, Rs10/-. so please dont release the coin of Rs150/-.

  15. vijen bhatt says

    Dear Mr.Rajandran, thanks for sharing the fact.
    I have a question, will this money be issued like normal currency or there will be some provisions for R.150 coin.
    As, issuing a paper currency could have been cheaper then issuing in metallic form.

    The best idea to introduce our indian currency in the form of coins..the main advantage is it will avoid fake note scams which is disturbing our indian economy..but manufacturer of that coins should do a good design and should use such metal which is affordable to government and cannot be easily copied by thieves who is making fake currency of our india..
