Picture of this so called 'new 10 Rupees coin' is doing rounds in internet today. I have serious doubts about the genuineness of the coin design as I don't believe that the Indian mint's can come up with coin designs so fast. Also the design is too radical by Indian standards and looks more like a commemorative coin commemorating the new Rupee symbol.

on closer look, the ashoka emblem looks as if engraved rather than embossed. someone is having fun?

The term 'fake' is inappropriate for these coins as there is nothing original to be faked. These are fantasy coins and are of interest to pseudo coin collectors. The above image is probably photoshoped by an artist but some scamsters decided to mint these coins with intention of duping noobs. These are still being sold at Ebay and inspite of me reporting to them that these are not legal tenders as advertised (which is agaist Ebay policy), no action is being taken to pull these out :(

The mint hasn't started shipment of the RBI's platinum jubilee coin sets and no one can tell when they will do.
