The Denomination of coins is Rupees 1000 and Rupees 10. Proof and UNC sets will be issued for the collectors from the Indian Government mint. These will be available at a premium price determined by mint for pre- booking. The five Rupees coin will be issued for general circulation.

Isn't there a confusion?
Apart from 1000/-, is the coin for circulating commem of 10/- or 5/-?

Why is it a 1000/- Rupee coin?  Is there any reason for it?

To give company to the Temple coin  >:D
I don't think there is any reason, the 1000 is biggest denomination so far and symbolic that this is a very old tradition although not 1000 years, but still I guess around 800+

1000 Rupees is the highest denomination permitted under The Coinage Act, 2011.

The delay is due to a controversary, so common to India

"NEW DELHI: A controversy has broken out over depiction of Lord Jagannath on coins proposed to be issued in commemoration of Nabakalebara 2015. Months after the central government announced that it will issue coins of Rs 10 and Rs 1,000 denominations to mark the latest edition of the once-in-19-years symbolic recreation of four deities including Lord Jagannath, the design is far from finalised."

The coin shouldn't have been proposed at first place, as Delhi High Court had said (in 2014) that constitution does not permit coins with religious symbols (see here).

Delhi high jurisdiction is limited to Delhi state.
There are no mints in Delhi state nor RBI headquarters in that state.

Odisha government is the proposer and is not bound by that judgement.

Mr. Pabitra,
you are wrong, Coin are issued by Ministry of Finance and not Odisha Government and Delhi High Court has Jurisdiction over it, Case is still pending in Delhi High Court challenging the issue of Coin On 25 Anniversary of Vaishno Devi Trust and Brihadeshwara Temple

Just a guess. Could be because they are personalities. Like wise Basawharar and Narayana gurudev didn't figure.
There was a case to include Mahavir Jain, but it was to old in past. The Gur-ta-gaddi coins were not in circulation.

But ya over all quite strange.

On mata coins even Hindu groups are upset as coins can be used in meat, liquor shops and its disrespect to the deity.

SJTA refuses view on coin

February 06 2016

Puri, : The Srimandir administration has declined to offer any suggestions to the Union culture ministry on the design of the proposed Nabakalebara commemorative coin, which had earlier run into a controversy.

The Union culture ministry had recently written a letter to Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) seeking its suggestions on the design. SJTA refused to give suggestions saying the culture ministry had not sent it a sample of the proposed design.

According to sources, a decision to mint coins to commemorate the Nabakalebara festivities was taken by the ministry earlier. As per the plan, it was decided that coins of Rs 10 and Rs 1,000 denominations would be minted.

A seven-member committee formed to oversee and finalise the design aspects comprised noted writers JP Das, Haraprasad Das, Pratibha Ray, Tirupati University Vice-Chancellor Prof Harekrushna Satpathy, painter Dinanath Pathi, the Delhi-based resident commissioner of Orissa and the deputy secretary of the Union culture ministry.

The original design of the coins had an imprint of the idol of Lord Jagannath during the Sunabesha ritual. However, the design sparked a controversy as some experts said Sunabesha is not a regular ritual of Lord Jagannath and that the lord is not worshipped in this attire inside the sanctum sanctorum always.

While the basic objective to have an imprint of the Lord is to spread Jagannath culture across the world, there were apprehensions that the design chosen could create a different, one-sided impression among followers and devotees of Jagannath on the general look of the Lord’s idol.

Union economic affairs department secretary Shaktikanta Das had also raised his objections to the design with Sunabesha, which finally failed to get the Union culture ministry’s approval.

SJTA, in its reply to the ministry’s letter, said it cannot send any suggestions as the ministry has not sent it a sample of the new design. SJTA administrator (Niti), Pradip Kumar Das, said, “This is a time-taking process. We will be able to give our suggestions only after holding discussions with several outfits of servitors, researchers and pundits after the design reaches us”.
