as per their booking advertisement, deliveries will commence after 6 months from date of  closing. deliveries should begin around second week of march 2012.

kolkata mint shipped louis braille proof by Blue Dart. for some reasons order details are not regularly updated on their website.

hope it helps.:)

I finally received the proof set yesterday. The delivery invoice is dated March 16, so the deliveries started recently I guess.

Really beautiful set. Worth the wait of 6 months !!!

I RECEIVED THE COINS WHICH I BOOKED IN AUGUST 2011 ON 23RD MARCH 2012. 

COULD ANYONE SPOT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN UNC AND PROOF COINS OF THE RABINDRANATH RS150/-

I DID SEE BOTH THE COINS, BUT THERE WERE NO DIFFERENCES EXCEPT FROM THE COVER WHERE YOU CAN IDENTIFY WHETHER IT IS PROOF OR UNC.

Proof coins can be easily distinguished from business strikes as the have mirror finished planchet (coin surface) and frosted devices (letterings and other raised artwork).

I spoke to them 2 days back. They said the delivery is going to start from 15th May 2012 and go on till end of Jul 2012.

So hopefully you can get your coins before that time.

However, what I am actually surprised is that these coins are up for sale on eBay.

I am just wondering how these people could get it before any of us could get.

When checked with Kolkata Mint on the same, they mentioned that they have not despatched even 1 single coin and chances are that the coins may be fake. However, there are atleast 3-4 vendors who are selling the 150 Rs coin on ebay at 6000 Rs. Any idea how they could get it?

 

Thanks

Prasad
