Given clear images are not available for this and the Paika rebellion coin, I took a screenshot of the flag hoisting coin. It's not a complete picture, but gives some additional details. Thanks.

Rupees 75 (75th Years of First Flag Hosting by Netaji) coin is up for booking on the Mumbai Mint Website, exactly after a year of its unveiling.

https://www.spmcil.com/Interface/product-in-Detail.aspx?sell=154

The UNC is for 2655 & Proof is for 2830. Payment gateway charges "might" be extra for online booking.

Its just a single coin of Rs 75, the usual 35 gm, 44 mm & 50% silver Quaternary Alloy variety.

No dates mentioned online, till when its available for booking. I'm guessing the newspaper ads soon will publish the dates.

In my opinion is highly priced as the Rs 550 coin (PRAKASH PURAB OF SRI GURU NANAK DEV JI), with the same weight & specifications is cheaper by around Rs 250 & currently available for booking!

NOTE: It seems Mumbai Mint is testing the website. The buying option has been removed now & says No coins Available! Till few moments back it was allowing to buy!

Thanks
Parth

Well, one can buy it now. The booking is open & seems to allow to buy the coin. Newspaper advertisement should follow soon with booking dates.
