We all know that  it was planned to issue the 5 rupee  commemorative coin  on August 1,2007 which marks freedom fighter Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak's death anniversary but unfortunately, a mistake in the embossed words upset that schedule and the mistake was the suffix 'Ji' in Devanagari Legend after the name Tilak, which is used as suffix of respect. Due to some unknown reason it was decided to remove the suffix "JI" and to scrap away around 20 lakh tilaji legend bearing coins by the Reserve Bank of India. The Figure '20,00,000' is an estimate which i extracted from a news clipping. To view the original version of news click here
