Very unlikely that I'll be there as I am supposed to be in Pune just a week before the exhibition to attend couple of family functions. It's a recommended exhibition, especially if you are from Mumbai/Pune.

Classical doesn't have much fare in Republic India this time ... except for error coins ... it now looks like there is an active efforts by everyone to move the hobby towards error coin collection.

Well if they do not keep changing the menu, the diners (the buyers) will get tired of the same old stuff. Variation helps keep their game going.......

It was at one time Mughals, then, IPS, then Ancients, recently Bengal Sultans......... now errors..........

Rare coins to go under the hammer at ‘Coinex’ exhibition from Friday

TNN | Updated: Dec 12, 2017, 23:29 IST

Pune: Rare coins, some of them dating back to 500 BC, will be on display and put up for auction at the Coinex Pune 2017, an event organised by the International Collectors' Society of Rare Items on December 15, 16 and 17.

Narendra Tole, the president of the International Collectors' Society of Rare Items, said the society has been organizing the coin exhibition since the past 21 years, and this is the 22nd edition of the event.

Pune residents will have a unique opportunity to see a variety of coins — including ancient, Mughal and nazarana coins — at Sonal Hall, Karve Road from 10 am to 7 pm.

The exhibition will be inaugurated at 10 am on December 15 by Prashant Kulkarni, a senior coin collector. The lifetime achievement award will be presented to the Pune's well-known coin collector Arvind Athavale and Lucknow's Ran Vijay Singh.

Meanwhile, Ganesh Savaleshwarkar, the Postmaster General of Pune, will inaugurate a special cover of Indus Valley Civilization designed by the collector's society at 3pm.

A special stall of the postal department will also be put up at the venue where visitors can see and buy various stamps and covers of the department.

A unique attraction of the exhibition will be an auction of more than 1,200 items on display. The auction will take place at 5pm on December 15 as well as December 16.

People from different Indian cities including Kolkata, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Rajkot, Baroda, Bengaluru and Chennai are expected to participate in the auction.

Moreover, a facility to identify coins will be made available wherein Puneites, who might have rare coins, can get information about their approximate value, year, history, inscriptions, figures, impressions on each coin from experts in numismatics — the study of coins.
