New Commemorative: MS Subbalakshmi
« on: May 20, 2017, 02:52:55 AM »
Dear friends

We may see coins on famous musician MS Subbalakshmi. Madurai Shanmukhavadivu Subbulakshmi was an internationally acclaimed Carnatic vocalist from Madurai, India. She was the first musician ever to be awarded the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honour.

Regards

It would be nice to have another female hero on an Indian commem. Looking forward.

The Indian Government will issue two coins in the denomination of Rs 100 and Rs 10 to celebrate the birth centenary of this renowned singer and musician. The coins will be inscribed with the words, 'Birth Centenary of Dr. M. S. Subbulakshmi 1916-2016' and a portrait of the singer. The Rs 10 coins will be bimetallic as other coins in the recent past.

It would be nice if the coins are issued at a function to conclude the birth centenary celebrations on 16 Sep 2017.

Enjoy.

The coins were initially planned for issuance on 15th September 2017 by Vice President Sh Venkaiah Naidu.

Now they may be issued on 19th September 2017.
