When was the last time you held a 10-paise, 20-paise or 25-paise coin in your hand? Even though these coins have lost their purchase value over the passage of time, they’re still priceless and invaluable to the numismatists. 

Many memories and moments from the past come flooding back when you hold these coins. The images below will remind you of those good old times and provide a glimpse into the Indian numismatic history.

These coins were minted in nickel with the image of the tiger, India’s national animal

Coins that bring back childhood memories
