Dear Malji1

Pooja / Puja means worship. This Indira Gandhi coins is used by some superstitious persons. Please notice that Indira Gandhi is wearing a garland of Rudraksha Beads. Rudraksha is considered auspicious.
Wikipedia on Rudraksha

It is associated with Lord Shiva.  Lord Shiva is considered as The Destroyer.
Lord Shiva

Rudra = Shiva and  Aksha = Eyes

A Rosary is made of Rudraksha seeds for prayers. Name of Lord Shiva is chanted with each bead of Rudraksha. In the coin, Indira Gandhi is wearing the Rudraksha garland, so it is considered lucky.

Pls see that Lord Shiva is wearing similar garland (as in coin). The river Ganges is originating from Shiva's Head. As per Hinduism, Lord Shiva carries a snake and a trident. He rides Nandi bull. He holds moon on his head. He wears a leotard of tiger skin. Elephant headed Lord Ganesha is his son.

Dear Malcolm, Arthur & Peter

Ebay did not remove the Indira Gandhi coin from the auction. They informed that the coin was not removed because the Seller has declared upfront that 'The coin is not a legal tender' but used for puja.

This appears to be entirely reasonable.  :D  :D  :D

If you notice any more fake Republic India coins on ebay, please inform me.

Firstly let me congratulate you on your great successes.

Now let's turn to puja "coins". Ebay has a new policy that bans replicas being sold so does puja really fit into the new catagory of replica or should, in the case of india, it be considered as something else?
In my opinion if it looks like a real coin then it is a replica and should be banned under the Ebay policy.

Great stuff!

I see the link to the Indira Gandhi coin is now dead - there were three coins listed in his other items, unfortunately the link to these is also lost, lets hope they removed these too.

Of course there is still a huge number of replicas in other fields such as WW2 ration books and Identity cards for instance, I have two of each that were gifts at some time and I have seen the same offered for sale by a large numismatic auction site in Australia. It was of course removed immediately when I pointed it out to them.

Kansalji,

I was just kidding. :p As long as the fake coins are removed from ebay it doesn't matter who informed whom and of course you don't have to inform anyone, its our responsibility to keep ourselves informed and appreciate the work you are doing. Cheers!!
Warm Regards,
Mackie

The American coin is genuine (however not rare, you can get it for less than $2), those pattern euro coins are fake. Privately produced, misleading advertisement.

I don't think anyone will ever take the risk of forging the presidential $1 coins...Since nobody uses them, the forger will lose lot of money in the business. ;D
