India will soon have Rs 20 coin shaped as 12 edged polygon, says Finance
Rs. 1 _ 20 mm _ Round _ Plain edge _ Steel
Rs. 2 _ 23 mm _ Round _ Milled edge _ Steel
Rs. 5 _ 25 mm _ Round _ Plain edge _ Brass

Here: New Rs 20 coin shaped as 12-edged polygon to be in circulation soon, says

In my opinion, a bit boring, simple but modern design, I like it. And the Rs20 coin is the first polygonal bimetallic coin with a “silver” ring minted for circulation, the rest of polygonal coins hace brass or copper ring and nickel center.

Good job India, hope that the poor struck quality will be improved too.

Dear Euro Coin

Your pic depicting Rs 20 coin is wrong. The actual coin is quite different.

There is a possibility that depiction of Rs 10 coin may also have some errors (not sure). I will check and reconfirm

Indeed, looks like the final designs don't have braille marks.

Very Nice coins. Rs 1 and Rs 2 are smaller and Rs 5 is bigger. Rs 10 and Rs 20 has 27 mm.
