Attached flyer gives more details about the show. My past experience says that it's a good exhibition to attend. :)

That case is excellent: four locking points. Any insurance company would have to love it. :)

A friend who visited the exhibition yesterday informed me that overall, it's OK but the prices are on higher side. Not mush to lose if you couldn't visit. ;)

Well done, Abishek. A question occurred to me. At 18mm, the coin is smaller than a silver rupee. Yet, the design seems reasonably complete. However, I have no idea of the size of the pagodas. I wonder if a special die was prepared for this copper piece and, in case a die for a gold coin was used, if this could be an off-metal strike, possibly trying out a new die?
