  6. Hello Sir,
    I am a great fan of your site and currently referring to the same to build my own collection. I have a question on 10 Rs. coin for the period 2008 - 2010. Do these coins have the corresponding mint marks like a dot for Noida and diamond for Mumbai? Even in the picture above, there is no mint mark below 2010. So should one consider this as a Noida mint coin? Could you please help to clarify?

    Thanks.
