    2. Sir, I am reading the 5th Addition of Krause world coin book from 2001 till date. In that book they have mentioned KM# 346 as Sant Tukaram (film about poet) 2 rs coin and KM# 305 as Sant Tukaram (seated musician. I was also getting confused in the 2 coins and wanted to discuss the same in the common forum.

    1. The cost of 2 rs platinum jubilee indian air force coin is 2 rs for those who got it from circulation. Those who could not get it from circulation, for them the price is to be decided by the dealers, dealing with coins.
