Happy New Year to all readers. Moving on from the COVID-19 pandemic year. Hopefully 2021 will bring some respite for everyone. As India gears up for it's 75th year of independence in 2022, several coin topics can be considered. You can leave your ideas or suggestions for potential commemorative coins issued by India's finance ministry. Like previous years, I have started the list with last year's remaining and relevant topics below.

Following subjects could be considered for coin releases in 2021-22:
200th Birth Anniversary of Sri Satguru Ram Singh Ji (confirmed)
125th Birth Anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose (issued on 23 Jan 2021)
125th Birth Anniversary of Swami Pranavananda Ji (confirmed)

50 Years of 1971 Indo-Pak War (Swarnim Vijay Varsh)
75 Years of Independence
100th Death Anniversary of Subramanian Bharathi
125th Birth Anniversary of Morarji Desai
125th Birth Anniversary of Bhaktivedanta Swami (Srila Prabhupada)
150 Years of Census of India
150th Birth Anniversary of Sri Aurobindo
250th Birth Anniversary of Raja Ram Mohun Roy

Given the spate of 125th birth anniversary coins.. I'm adding 125th anniversary of founder of ISKCON Bhaktivedanta Swami (Srila Prabhupada) to the list of potential topics. He was born on 01 September 1896.

Adding birth centenary of Bhimsen Joshi to the list of potential subjects for commemorative coin issuance.

Bhimsen Joshi (04 February 1922 – 24 January 2011) was a vocalist in the Hindustani classical tradition & an exponent of Khyal. He was awarded Bharat Ratna in 2008.

Isn’t this the 50th year of the India-Pakistan war that resulted in Bangladesh’s independence?

I hope Government issues a gold commemorative coin for "75 Years of Independence".
