Title: Themes for New India Commemorative Coins 2020-21 - Any Guesses?
Post by: betterphilately.com on January 04, 2020, 03:54:51 PM
Happy New Year to all readers. Last year was surprisingly busy with several commemorative coins being issued almost throughout the year. Ones on Guru Gobind Singh Ji and Dr. MGR were somewhat delayed from the event dates, but nonetheless ended up in 2019. I'm starting to put together the list of potential coins that could be issued in 2020, so do let me know of your ideas and suggestions. This list has been a good source to track all possible subjects that the Finance Ministry picks up for commemorative coins. I've put some pending ones along with some new ideas, and will be happy to add more as information is available from everyone. Enjoy collecting.

Following subjects could be considered for coin releases in 2020-21:
200th Birth Anniversary of Sri Satguru Ram Singh Ji (confirmed)
Birth Centenary of Vijaya Raje Scindia (confirmed)

50th Death Anniversary of Dr. C. V. Raman
75 Years of United Nations
125th Birth Anniversary of Dr. Yellapragada Subbarow
150 Years of Census of India
150 Years of Indian Life Insurance
150th Birth Anniversary of Dada Saheb Phalke (also 125 Years of Cinema)
200th Birth Anniversary of Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar
400th Birth Anniversary of Guru Tegh Bahadur
600th Year of Rana Kumbha
750th Year of Sant Namdev
1000th Birth Anniversary of Sri Ramanujacharya 1017-2017

Following subjects could be considered for coin releases in 2021-22:
75 Years of Independence
250th Birth Anniversary of Raja Ram Mohun Roy

Uncertain
Sant Kabir Das

Last year was supposed to be slow but saw 8 release function plus new definitive series.
Hopefully this year will be slow.

I think Kabir Das is canned.

Let's see. I've updated Kabir Das as such and also added a couple of possible subjects for following calendar years as well. Please share your thoughts. Thanks.

Added potential subject: 400th birth year of Guru Tegh Bahadur. Several coins on Sikh theme have been issued lately, let's see how this one goes.

Obviously, there should be a coin for the founding of the Non-cooperation movement (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-cooperation_movement) on 1st August 1920.
