Hi All,

    let me start the first thread in this forum :D

I'm relatively new to this hobby and trying to learn what I can. Recently I learnt that 1970 1 Rupee coin is most sought after in Republic India coins. I couldn't get my query clarified at that moment but let me ask expert folks here on what makes 1970 1 Rupee rare one.

 

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum Ranjit :D


Whether the 1970 1 Rupee is the most sought after ROI coin can be disputed in my opinion. There were two types of 1970 1 Rupee; both minted by the Bombay mint, one is proof and another one is business strike. The proof coin is considered to be more common than the circulation coin. The total mintage of both the coins is considered to be 3,046 according to Krause catalog and value $7 in mint state for the business strike coin.

Hope it helps :)

Thanks!

I know that if it's most sought after is debatable or not. I've my own thoughts but I just shared what I was told by the expert :)

 

Does anybody have rare coins list for Indian Republic and British India coins?
