Wonderful Amit.  Looking at the coin is almost like having a great cup of tea. It exhilerates me. 
But right now, I think I need a real cup.

Richie,
A real cup of chai is possible only in India. What you drink is as we say 'an appology of what is called tea'. I do not mean to offend anyone but a sip of freshly boiled masala chai gives a kick which even a peg of normal whiskey will not. So for some real tea, India calls........

Amit

PS: I myself do not drink tea.

Oh, how you know me!  After reading your post, I was almost tempted to buy a ticket to Mumbai just for the tea.
But then, I remembered that I have a wonderful wife who might wonder why I didn't show for dinner. So, for now, I will savor only the images of your wonderful coins and make do with the Oregon "chai".
