Former Prime Minister of India, Gulzarilal Nanda's commemorative coins on occasion of his birth centenary were approved to be minted in 1999.

As per the press release, a commemorative stamp was also supposed to be released and was indeed released by India Post in 1999. So what went wrong with the coin?

 

Also the Reserve Bank of India reportedly in their 'Statement of Commemorative Coins for General Circulation' reported the following coin as circulating commemorative strikes

 

- 5 Paise 1980 Rural Women's Advancement

- 10 Paise 1983 World Food Day

- 1 Rupee 1986 Fisheries (World Food Day) [reportedly minted during 1988/89]

5 Paise 1980 Rural Women's Advancement

10,25 paise coins were minted for the same cause so I guess they skipped minting the 5 paise


10 Paise 1983 World Food Day

I think the coin intended for 1983 was issued in 1982


1 Rupee 1986 Fisheries (World Food Day) [reportedly minted during 1988/89]

50 Paise Fisheries was issued, I guess they decided not to mint the 1 rupee


Gulzarilal Nanda's commemorative coins

Change in government? I guess they shelved the plans, may not have found popular support?
