Quote from: asm on January 10, 2010, 02:47:45 AMI'm not aware of any spelling errors on Indian Coins. However Bank Notes issued both during the British occupation as well as Republic India bank notes have had spelling error. And what about the Rs 50 note that had the flagstaff on the Parliament building but no flag. Not a gramatical mistake nor a spelling error but a blunder in any case.Amit

Quote from: numismatica on January 10, 2010, 06:50:21 AMThat's the coin which still eludes me.The word 'Bharat' was wrongly spelled as 'Marat',but in Devanagari.However,the 'BHA' (भ) and 'MA'(म ) are quite similar in Devanagari script,so the error is not easily recognizable.These error coins were minted at Calcutta (now Kolkata) mint (As usual )Aditya
