Themes for New India Commemorative Coins: 2016
« on: January 01, 2016, 06:19:11 AM »

Wondering if it's OK to create this post to collect ideas or guesses for commemorative coins releases for 2016 and 2017. Would others be interested to post here? It be nice if this post could be pinned as well. Maybe, there is already a post where such items need to be posted. This can be deleted as necessary.

Anyway, the following could be subjects for coin releases in 2016-17:
200th Birth Anniversary of Tatya Tope 2015 (released on 18 Apr 2016)
150th Birth Anniversary of Lala Lajpat Rai 1865-2015 (released 28 Jan 2016)

Birth Centenary of Biju Patnaik 1916-2016 (released 05 Mar 2016)
Centenary of Banaras Hindu University 1916-2016 (released on 12 May 2016)

Birth Centenary Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya 1916-2016 (confirmed)
Birth Centenary of Bhisham Sahni 1915-2015
Birth Centenary of M. S. Subbulakshmi  1916-2016

150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Abhedananda

Centenary of Banaras Hindu University 1916-2016

This issue is also confirmed. :)

Commemorative coin on Indira Gandhi in 2017 seems very unlikely to me for obvious reasons. ;)

Veer Savarkar and Nanaji Deshmukh are highly likely. Don't see any reasons not to issue them!

I would like to see an Indian coin with the Taj Mahal as a subject. Why wait until 2032?

In 2008, after his second assembly election win in 2007, Mr. Narendra Modi, current Prime Minister of India, wrote a book in Gujarati titled ‘Jyotipunj’ (Beams of Light) in which he retold the life stories of 16 men who inspired him.
Does any one have the list of those 16 persons?
They may get covered in next 3 - 4 years.

These are suggested by state governments.
Many time, they are again sent when asked for fresh suggestions.
Once listed in agenda, they linger on for few years.
1000 years of coronation of Rajendra Chola is still in the list although it was suggested three years back, around the same time as S Radhakrishnan.

Now the mint also is very active since the coins released but not issued form a good source of revenue by way of sets. The sets are opened for booking almost along with release. They have a big database of set buyers who are sent booking open marketing literature by electronic media.

2016 will have more releases than 2015.

Was just hoping to wait on the official communication for the Banaras Hindu University coin.

Thanks all for taking the time to provide your input for new coin subjects for the next two years. Let's track these subjects and the members posting them.

Not quite sure where the official government communication resides. There is none to be found on the interwebs. BHU Centenary coin release seems certain, just no announcement from the concerned ministries yet (Prime Minister's Office, Finance, Culture or Human Resource Development). As soon as such information is made available, it will be posted on the above thread. Looking forward to this coin and others in 2016.
