Dear Rony Sir, i have one query . Kolkatta mint has released a set of Sant Tukaram (4 coint set) which i thing is almost 10 years old (2002). are they reminting the set or selling the same old set that were minted before 10 years.
Also i read the market value of those coins were not less than 25,000 INR. is this true , i think it is worth buying it from mint for merly Rs 10,000.
Your comments please.

The sets are going to be re-striked and are not original strikes. The mint will be abusing it's power because it has the freedom to generate revenue without adhering to any minting regulation or standard international practices, if it releases the sets without any distinguishing label. Also at the same time, it will be a boon to low-budget and newbie collectors, encouraging the hobby by deflating the prices.
