Themes for New India Commemorative Coins: 2018
« on: January 06, 2018, 03:18:58 PM »
New Year wishes to everyone! It's time again to get your predictions out for commemorative coin subjects in the new year. Last year was slightly more manageable, with only three new coins in the 2017 calendar year. Even though notifications were issued for Dr. MGR and Jagganath Nabakalebara, neither release events have been held yet. I've carried over several subjects from previous years below, but let me know if this needs editing. Could you please post your guesses or information for 2018-19 coin subjects as replies to this post? Thanks.

The following should be subjects for coin releases in 2018-19:
Atal Bihari Vajpayee 1924-2018 (released on 24 Dec 2018)
Birth Centenary of Dr. M. G. Ramachandran (confirmed)
Shree Jagganath Nabakalebara 2015 (released on 18 Mar 2018)
75th Anniversary of First Flag Hoisting Day - 30.12.1943-30.12.2018 (released on 30 Dec 2018)
125th Birth Anniversary of P. C. Mahalanobis (released on 29 Jun 2018)
200 Years of Paik Rebellion (released on 22 Dec 2018)
350th Birth Anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh 1666-2016 (released on 13 Jan 2019)

125th Birth Anniversary of Paramhansa Yogananda
150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi
1000th Birth Anniversary of Sri Ramanujacharya 1017-2017
550th Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev
600th Birth Anniversary of Rana Kumbha
Birth Centenary of Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia
Centenary of Jallianwala Bagh Massacare (possibly in April 2019)
Sant Kabir Das

Uncertain Subjects:
125th Birth Anniversary of S. N. Bose
150th Birth Anniversary of J. C. Bose

Would be surprised if there is no issue commemorating this!

550th Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev

Highly likely. Any idea what happened to the petition in Delhi High Court which wanted religious personalities not to appear on coins?

Kabir das looks to be canned.

Hopefully Nabkalebar does not reach the same fate of some other coins not released after gazette notification.

I would like to see a coin devoted to the estimated 62 000 Indians killed in the first world war.

Till about 6 -7 years back, there used to be no gazette notification and RBI press release was considered to be adequate. Now the gazette notification is issued long before the release and issue is usually accompanied  by press release of RBI. Recent trend appears to be no press release altogether.

Can I have details of gazette notification of the 50 years of Republic and other unreleased coins?

Added the upcoming coin for 75th anniversary of Subhash Chandra Bose's Flag hoisting in 1943. Several coins - MGR, Guru Gobind Singh - and possibly Paika rebellion - are still pending, but not being issued. Somewhat disappointing. Let's hope things move faster.

Finally gazette notification for Paika rebellion commemorative coin was issued, so was one for former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee. I've updated both these in the original post.
