Quote from: coffeetime on July 02, 2011, 05:15:09 PMHowever, for the later sereis, I see some themes going from 2007-9 and some only from 2008-9. I'm wondering if these and the earlier ones should be regarded simply as extended commemoratives, rather than permanent design changes "proper". I feel these series really fall into a rather different category.

It was planned that the sets would be launch within relay distance of each other.., though the entire process had to be speeded up because of unabating criticism on various fronts on each theme and coin .

Quote from: Bimat on July 02, 2011, 05:49:38 PMSo the summary of the story is:2004-2007 Series (Unity in diversity): all coins have same design (1R-10R), no 50 paise coin with this theme.2007-2010 Series (Connectivity and IT): Different design for every denomination (5 and 10 rupees); 50 paise, 1 rupee and 2 rupee coins had another theme: 'Natyamudra'.2007 50 paise: It has old 'National Integration' theme.2009-2010: 5 Rupees coin with old theme is introduced again with reduction in weight and metal change.Aditya
Quote from: chrisild on July 03, 2011, 02:18:48 AMYou mentioned the Turkish "Bin Lira" series (2001, #3) - well, that was a new set, so yes, why not list it there. Keep in mind though that "bin" is simply the Turkish word for "thousand"; they used that in order to avoid too many digits. The later "Yeni Lira" on the other hand (2005) was different in that "yeni" means "new".
Quote from: chrisild on July 03, 2011, 02:18:48 AMAnd then, in the list of euro countries (2002, #1-14) you focus on one hand on the year 2002 - makes sense from a "cash" POV of course. But then you should list Greece as well; it was not among the "initial 11" in 1999, but joined the euro area in 2001, so was part of it when the cash became legal tender.
Quote from: Bimat on July 02, 2011, 04:56:44 PMIndia issued a new series of circulation coins in 2004 (unity in diversity-the famous cross coins) which was discontinued in 2006 (or 2007?)
Quote from: Bimat on July 02, 2011, 04:56:44 PMand a new series was introduced in 2006 (or 2007? I'm confused) with the theme 'Natyamudra' which again will be discontinued in 2011.
Quote from: coffeetime on July 03, 2011, 02:52:12 AMAre you saying you think I should explain its meaning?
Quote from: chrisild on July 03, 2011, 11:35:55 AMWell, I for one did not know what "bin" (Turkish) means until I came across those coins a couple of years ago. So yes, why not add something like "bin = 1000"?Christian
