Also I have heard that there is a 2009 Ni-Br 5 Rupees phantom coin. Keep a lookout for that if anyone is from the northern part of the country.

The waves 5 Rupees steel coin were minted in Ni-Br by the Bombay mint in 2008 and by Noida mint in 2009. Although considered a pattern; many made their way in the hands of dealers. These are very rare, especially the Noida coin.

Can you guys help to build/correct this list?

To start with, I'm aware of following Indian Republic coins that are considered rare/hard to find:

 

- Land Vital Resource 2 Rupees (only 500 mintages as what I heard)

- 1996 Subhash Chandra Bose 2 Rupees Calcutta mint

- 2007 Lokamnya Bal Gangadhar Tilak coin released with "Tilakji" instead of "Tilak"

- 1960, 1970 1 Rupee

- 1982 National Integration 50 Paise - Calcutta Mint

- 1996 Second Crop Science Conference 5 Rupees

- 2004 Single Cross 5 Rupees and also 2 Rupees and 1 Rupee

- 1953/1954 1 Paisa Hydrabad mint

Recently i've obtained a single cross 5 rupee coin minted in year 2007. You can update this information in your website.

This thread is not a definitive guide of rare coins of India but rather a collection of thoughts of collectors what they think are the rare coins based on the elusiveness of the coin(s) based on their collecting experience and hence I don't feel it's necessary to compile seperate lists based on these suggestions.

A thing about definitive coins are that a coin which is hard to find from circulation in Bombay may not be so rare to find from circulation in Calcutta.

Really? I was not aware of  that 1988 50 paise coin came in cupro-nick version. As per Krause, both 1988 Calcutta and H'bad are rare. Does that mean both were cupro-nick?

Ok. Let me confirm my understanding. As per my knowledge (per what I read in Krause book) during 1988, 1989 and 1990, both 50 Paise Parliment (minted in steel) and regular 50 Paise (minted in Cupro nick) were released. But I (mis?)-interpreted from your statement that 50 Paise parliment coin were released both in steel and cupro-nickel. So can you please clarify if you meant cupro-nick mintage in regular coins or for parliment versions?

In you meant 50 cupro-nick coins in regular versions then I think it's not really that rare coin. For 1988-1990 years the order or rare coins for 50 Paise category would be as below (again referring Krause)

 

- 1988 Calcutta and H'bad mint - Parilment 50 Paise Steel

-1990 regular 50 Paise Cupro-Nick Bombay mint

- 1989 Calcutta - Parilment 50 Paise Steel

- 1988 regular 50 Paise Cupro-Nick Calcutta and H'bad mint

Please let me know if you have additional/different information on this.

Please let me know if you have additional/different information on this.

Thanks for prompt reply with full details.50 paise parliament coins are only in stainless steel. it clears all misunderstandng. cupro- nickel 50 paise are regular coins and different design,which were in circulation from 1984 to 1990.

Once again thanks and best wishes with regards.

Is the 1981 International Year Of The Child (59 gms) Rs.100 coin a very rare one?

I came across a guy in Mumbai selling its Proof Set for Rs. 1,75,000/- .

He said very few of these were minted and were given only to VIP's attending the function.

He also said they were printed in a foreign mint.

I think he was just trying to sell it to you really very hard. I have seen it sell on ebay for $100 a few months ago but in recent days it has gone up to $300. Nowhere near 1,75,000. 

I acquired one too a few months ago. I dont think it is a very rare coin. It was minted only in proof and piefort. The Piefort version, I have heard it very rare and totally unheard of. It is really pathetic that in modern India, they wouldnt keep track of how many of these were minted.

The one which you are talking about is the 29 grams coin. That is sold for about Rs.14000/-.

But the one which I am talking is the 59 grams one and it is very rare. I haven't yet seen one anywhere. Not even on Ebay.
