1 RUPEE LOK NAYAK JAYA PRAKASH NARAYAN MUMBAI MINT DIE VARIETY (WRONGLY DECIPHERED AS KOLKATA MINT STRUCK COIN)
In the year 2002 Ferric Stainless
Steel (FSS) One Rupee coins were released to commemorate the Lok Nayak Jaya
Prakash narayan's Birth centenary. These coins were minted in Mumbai Mint as
well as Hyderabad Mint, but not in Kolkata Mint. Still we can find some of
these coins without mint mark, which are wrongly deciphered as coins struck in Kolkata
mint, but in reality these coins without mint mark are struck in Mumbai Mint.
Why I'm deciphering here these as Mumbai mint products is because, I got a Mumbai Mint sealed pack of these commemorative coins and from that same pack i got two pieces of these coins which were devoid of
mint mark. This information needs to be confirmed yet, either through an RTI document or through any other appropriate document released by concerned authority.
