Indian 25 paise : commemorative

25 paise: world food day

25 paise: forestry for development
The reverse reads vikas ke liye vaniki at the top in Hindi, which means forestry for development. This one is a particularly hard to find small commemorative coin. Its like 1 coin in a lot 400-500 25 paise coins, maybe even lesser. I like this coin the most in Indian commemoratives.

25 paise: rural women's advancement
25 paise rural women's advancementThe rural women's advancement 25 paise coin is supposed to be common and very easy to find as the Krause catalog states its total mintage to be around 34 million, which is way higher than even asian games 25 paise coin which had a mintage of about 24 million and is very easily found; but I have been able to find just 2 pieces of this item, that too in XF condition. This one I got from a lot of large number of 25 paise coins a coin seller had. The star below the date shows that this this coin was minted in the Hyderabad mint.

25 paise : Asian games
25 paise asian games
The 9th Asian Games were held from November 19, 1982 to December 4, 1982 in Delhi, India. This was the second time the Games were held in Delhi as it was also host to the inaugural 1951 Asian Games. New Delhi joined Bangkok (four times) as the only cities to host multiple editions of the Asian Games.

The Delhi Asian Games was the first Asiad to be held under the aegis of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA). The Asian Games Federation, under whose jurisdiction the first eight Asian Games had been held, dissolved to make way for the OCA.

A total number of 4,595 athletes, coming from 33 countries, competed in this Asiad. Debut sports were equestrian, golf, handball, rowing, and Women's field hockey.

These Asian Games also saw the beginning of Chinese dominance in the medals tally. Japan had won the most number of medals in previous editions of the Games. China made its presence felt in the sporting world by dethroning Japan as the top gold medalists.

In preparation for the IX Asian Games, colour television was introduced in India in a big way, as the Games were to be broadcast in colour.

The mascot for the Games was Appu – a kid elephant. Known in real life as "Kuttinarayanan", this elephant fractured its leg in an accident when he was seven years old – he stepped into a septic tank. That wound would not heal and it eventually killed him. Kuttinarayanan died on May 14, 2005.

Host of the next (10th) Asiad in 1986, and the 24th Summer Olympics in 1988, South Korea participated in the New Delhi Asiad with a 406-person delegation, including an observation team to study the facilities, management and events.
