According to article 71 the import duty is 10% on value for coins which are not legal tender( i.e. old coins which are no longer in use). There are many cess[ Landing charges (1% CIF) • CESS (3% Countervailing duty) • Education CESS (3% (Duty + Landing charges + Countervailing duty)) • Additional customs duty (4% (Duty + Landing charges + Countervailing duty))] which make the total amount of duty paid roughly around 14%....

If you import them via postal service then you have to pay the duty only if customs open and check you packet. I didn't find any exemption but fill free to read the whole article
