In 1968, the Government of India introduced the Twenty Paise coins made of Brass Metal. Some people believed that these coins contain Gold and hence it was melted to make ornaments and parts of weapons. These coins were issued until 1971.


From 1988, a smaller 10 Paise made of ferretic stainless steel was introduced. Some of these coins have an error. The word 'Bharat' written in Hindi language is wrongly written as 'Marat'.


The rarest coin issued by the Republic of India, is a Two Rupees coin issued in 1992 by the Calcutta (now Kolkata) Mint to commemorate 'Land Vital Resource'. The coin is minted in Copper Nickel Alloy. The mintage of this coin is assumed to be less than 500. However, one can find this coin listed in the commemorative issued by the Calcutta Mint in its official website. It was issued as part of awareness campaign for conservation and promotion of scientific management of land resources. The coin was released by the then Honorable Minister for Agriculture, Mr. Sharad Pawar on 18-11-1993 during the National Resources Conservation Week which falls from 15th November to 21st of November. The Two Anna coin issued in the year 1955 are also one of the rare coins of the India Republic.
