    1. Dear Arun, the coins minted by Indian mints can be categorized as PROOF, UNC, NCLT (Non circulating legal tender), Regular coins for general circulation, commemoratives for circulation. If u look at the heading of this page, it is "CIRCULATING 10 RUPEES COMMEMORATIVE COINS OF INDIA". So in this page I've discussed about the circulating comm coins only. The "300th anniversary of birth of Guru-Ta-Gaddi 2008 coin", mentioned by u comes under the NCLT category, so intentionally left by me.

    First of all, super compilation of articles.Very informative & interesting.

    I would like to know, whether the commemorative coins of Gandhi,FAO & 25th anniversary were for actual circulation or just UNC sets?
