India 10 Rupees First Bimetallic Coin of India

Indian rupees 10 bimetallic coins is the country first ever bimetallic coin ever released. This post of mine may be a year late but better late than never. The said coin looks and feels light in weight with a numeral 10 and lion symbol on the obverse side. On the coin obverse side are double line cross and four dots in each corner of the cross. Written around the reverse side of the Indian rupee 10 bimetallic coin are words of the denomination value in both Hindi and English language.



 The design for this bimetallic coin is courtesy of the experts at National Institute of Design of Ahmedabad. The outer ring metal is made of Nickel-Bonze while the inner ring metal is made of Ferrous. Bimetallic Indian rupees 10 coins weighs 8 grams with diameter of 28 mm.

For this Rupees 10 coins, Reserve Bank of India said that there is two themes: Unity in Diversity and Connectivity and Information Technology.

I think the theme for this coin is really good especially the technology part. India is definitely moving forward. I know few people from India that is really good in their craft of making websites and programming.

I think this will be a great addition to my bimetallic coin collection ( I'm also interested to collect and learn India sultanate coins ) since it is India’s first though I don’t own yet either circulated or uncirculated India first bimetallic coin but hopefully someone will give me one (calling all my friends from India) or I just have to buy bimetallic coin online.

How Bimetallic Coins are Made

Bimetallic coins are really work of art. I find bimetallic coins more pleasing in the eyes since there are colors in it and the designs are superb. How to make bimetallic coins  is  more complicated than ordinary coins since there is an inner and outer ring involved to make a bimetallic coin.

How bimetallic coins are made is first by punching a hole in a planchet or a blank coin making a ring. The core made by punching a hole is then melted for another used. Then they formed a core that fits for the previous ring made. The core is made from different metal. Next is they pressed it together to lack the core inside the ring and that's how to make bimetallic coins.
