Above is the image of Rs.5 rusted coin. It has been minted in year 1996(properly not visible in image).

Is this coin fake or genuine ?? as once I saw a person selling similar IRON rs.5 coin of year 1996 on eBay claiming that this coin was minted by mistake in iron by government mint. 

If you have any infromation kindly share it.

Never heard of it. Looks like it was all minted only in Cupro-Nickel. If it was minted in Iron, it would be interesting to know why it was done.

hi Prashant Jain,

First of all congrats on ur informative site and about the iron coins, they I think are made for forgeries.. I have in my collection 2 such 5 rupee coin dated 2008(information technology theme) that have rusted after the upper coating gave way.. By looking at ur coin at ur site I felt it was similiar to my coin and made for forgery..

cheers :)
