Hello everyone,

Im new to both this forum and coin collection, i have always been fascinated by Numismatics and have finally thrown in the towel and decided to do something about it, so i would really appreciate if you guys can point me in the right direction. For starters i would like to know what are the books that are good for a beginner, and also what is the process of buying coin from the mint. right from knowing the release date to date opening bid,to how it gets processed where will the booking be announced......thnx in advance.....

Keep looking at the below links:

Mumbai Mint: http://www.mumbaimint.in/coinbooking.aspx

Kolkata Mint: http://igmkolkata.spmcil.com/spmcil/Interface/SellableProducts.aspx

Mints only offer Proof Sets ot UNC sets for sale and accept payment through credit card, and it will take up to six months to get your coins delivered.

Currently there are no coins available for booking at both the mints, You will find postings in ICN if the mints open coin booking.

Also you can check the RBI press release for both proof sets and regular issue coins at http://www.rbi.org.in/scripts/BS_PressreleaseDisplay.aspx

@Prasanth,

I have Krause catalog ( Standard Catalog of World Coins ) and refer all indian coins in that ...
I don't have much idea about any specific books for beginers, I am a beginer too and I find Krause useful.

May be other ICNers could tell about any specific book for beginers :)
