Long awaited details for the commemorative coin on 400th birth anniversary of Guru Tegh Bahadur are now available. A single coin in the denomination of Rs 400 will be issued showing the image of Gurudwara Guru Ka Mahal, Amritsar in the center. Two swords will encompass the image and text in Panjabi will be flanked all around the image.

Panjabi text: A ribbon label with text “400 ਸਾਲਾ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਸ਼ ਗੁਰੂਪ੍ੁਰਬ ਸ਼ਰੀ ਗੁਰੂਤੇਗ ਬਹਾਦਰ ਜੀ” (Sal Prakash Gurupurb Shri Guruteg Bahadur Ji) in Panjabi is flanked below the image of Gurudwara. Further, the Text “ਗੁਰੂਦੁਆਰਾ ਗੁਰੂਕੇਮਹਹਲ ਸ਼ਰੀ ਅਹਮਰਤਸਰ” (Gurudwara Gurukmahal Shri Ahmartsar) in Panjabi is inscribed besides the image of the Gurudwara and the text “ਪ੍ਰਗਟ ਭਏ ਗੁਰੂਤੇਗ ਬਹਾਦਰ ਸਗਲ ਹਸਿ੍ਸਟ ਪ੍ੈਢਾਪ੍ੀ ਚਾਦਰ”  (Gurteg Bahadur Sagal Hasist Pedhapi Chadarin) Panjabi is inscribed on top of the image of the Gurudwara.

Text in Hindi and English, '400th birth anniversary of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji' will be inscribed in the upper and lower periphary of the coin along with the year 1621-2021 inscribed as well.

Looks like a lot of images and text in the coin, which I like. Hoping everyone is staying safe and vaccinated.
