2012 - SHRI MATA VAISHNO DEVI SHRINE COIN

SILVER JUBILEE COMMEMORATION:


Vaishno Devi is one of the holiest Hindu shrines dedicated to Shakti also known as Mata Rani, Maa Vaishnavi and ‘Shera Waali’. At the Shrine, Goddess manifests herself as Mother Goddess in natural form (‘Holy Pindis’).

The temple is located at an altitude of 5300 feet on the Trikuta hills near the town of Katra in Jammu and Kashmir. Every year millions of pilgrims undertake 25 km trek (12 km one way) on a difficult and hilly terrain to have ‘darshan’ of Holy Mata. To manage the affairs of the Shrine in a better way, Govt of J&K set up Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board under a special Act in 1988. It is also popularly called as Shrine Board.





On occasion of the Silver Jubilee of the Shrine Board, on 31.01.2013, GOI issued commemorative coins of Rs 5, Rs 10 and Rs 25. Coins of Rs 5 & Rs 10 are being issued for general circulation. The coins depict Holy Mata with her eight hands astride her tiger. She holds weapons like Sword, Trident, Mace, Bow & Arrow and Chakra to destroy the evil forces. She also holds lotus flower and a conch shell. Her one hand is open to give ‘ashirwaad’ (blessings).

This is the first time since India gained independence that a deity has been depicted on any coin. Keeping in view the religious sentiments of the public, the coins may be minted in huge quantity (possibly one billion).
