Theme is the occassion which the coin represents.

for 100 years of civil avaitation occassion celebration they released a 100/- coin with repect to the occassion. so 100years civil avaitation is the theme of this coin.
you will find the coins with these theme in Circulation also with normal face values like 5/- or 10/-

if you observed the 100 years civial avaitation theme Proof or UNC set,along with Rs.100 coin, you will see Rs.5 also.

The metal composition of Rs.5 is same in all cases(Proof/UNC/Circulated) the Manufacturing standards are going to be differed based on type of coin


Mumbai mint sells both UNC & Proof over online
at counter of mint, based on availability of stock they will vary


Theme is the occassion which the coin represents. This is not a new catagory


Not valid Question


To my Knowledge no


Not valid Question

hi vivek..

i've recently made purchase of those theme coins from mumbai mint counter. 

the coins are minted only at one particular place , but availble for sale at other counters too. ( for example mother theresa coins minted by kolkatta are being sold by mumbai mint)

and as told by Mr.Chandra theme is not a special kind of coin quality. its a name given to the coin, ( ex mother theresa is one theme, common wealth games is other theme, 100 yrs civil aviation is otr theme etc,
