So far only the new 5 rupees coin has been found in general circulation. Is that correct?

There are photos of other new denominations but it seems these were not found in general circulation.

2 Rupees coin of new series has been reported in circulation by a friend from New Delhi, India.

This and 5 Rupees reported in Delhi are from Noida mint whereas earlier 5/- and 2/- reported were of Mumbai mint.

Apart from these two denominations, only image of 10 Rupees of Kolkata mint has appeared.
1/- and 20/- coin images have not appeared so far.

20/- minting is scheduled to start in Hyderabad mint in January.

I see, so only 2 and 5 rupees then. It is all taking a lot of time.

Here are the images of Noida mint products

Each mint schedules its production as per RBI requisition, based on Currency Chests indents in the captive area.
1/- is expected to be not only the last but may be produced only by Kolkata mint ( as was 50 paise coin, after 2011 till 2016).

The issue of whole series at one go is either for Unc sets or when the orders are placed on to a foreign mint.

I got the new Rs 2 coin in Circulation in Mumbai, 2 days before Christmas at a local Paan shop! Its tiny & can be confused with the current Re 1 coin in circulation, which looks as small as the earlier Rs 50 paise coin to the naked eye!

Could this be the reason that either Rupee 1 coins are still not out for circulation or whenever they come out, it would be very limited circulation (& most likely from Kolkatta Mint only)?

Yes. Kolkata mint also does not appear to have received indent for 1 Rupee coins so far.

Regarding 20 Rupees coins, it is due for issue anytime from Hyderabad mint.

Finally, the image of an actual 20 Rupees coin is gone viral. In the days of Covid19 and lockdown, viral word is become scary.

That 20 rupees coin looks very bad. It looks completely round and has been struck twice.
