Indian 20 paise-commemoratives

20 paise: Mahatma Gandhi birth centenary
20 paise mahatma gandhiI would take the second part to be the head in this 20 paisa coin, which shows the bespectacled figure of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, who is known throughout the world for his non-violent approach in the freedom struggle of India. He was born in 1869 and was assassinated in 1948 by Nathuram Godse, one year after India got its independence. These twenty paisa coins were thought to be made of gold as they had a gold tone and were melted down in large amounts by ignorant and stupid people.
