Republic India fakes - 1

5 rupee with wave design, 2007
5 rupee wave itA number of such 5 rupee coins were in circulation, which were actually fake. The only visible pointer of this coin being a fake is the fuzziness of the design. If you want to know more, then I can tell you that this coin is made of iron, and hence magnetic. If you leave such a coin in moist air for sufficient period of time, then it would also rust. In contrast, the genuine 5 rupee with same design was made of stainless steel.

I also came across similar 5 rupee coins which were made from the commemorative coins of SBI(state bank of India) which were also in circulation.


Indira Gandhi 1 rupee
indira gandhi 1 rupeeAnother bad, bad fake of Indira Gandhi. Indira Gandhi coin never came out in 1 rupee denomination in the first place. Moreover, on the five rupee the Indira Gandhi image shows the left face but here the right face is being shown. Also, the image looks totally atrocious even at first look.



Indira Gandhi 1 rupee with mala
fake indira gandhi 1 rupee rudraksh malaThe Indira Gandhi 1 rupeee is a bad forgery and I believe that even a layman should be able to tell this is a fake. Any Indira Gandhi coin was never minted in the 1 rupee denomination, and also no Indira Gandhi coin showing the front face has been minted. I have no idea how someone got the idea of putting a mala(necklace) in Indira Gandhi's neck.


BR Ambedkar 2 rupee
fake br ambedkar 2 rupeeThis BR Ambedkar 2 rupee is perhaps the best fake in republic India that I have come across so far. The Ambedkar 2 rupee was never minted by the government, only the one rupee was. The obverse with the denomination looks perfectly fine, though an experienced numismatist knows that the style of the '2' in the 2 rupee coins has been changing ever since its inception. If you have knowledge you would know that the '2' in the 1990 2 rupee coin differs from the '2' in the 2000 two rupee coin(Ambedkar centenary was in 1990). The '2' design on this coin is the same as the design on the 2 rupee coins of 2000-2004, meaning that this coin was made some 5-6 years back, and not in 1990. Now moving on to the reverse, we see the Ambedkar figure. The coin is shining but the figure is a little worn out. The shine tells that the coin is freshly minted. But this contradicts the story told by the wear and tear, which suggests that the die used for this forgery was made from a worn out coin. The pronounced features are also pointers of a forgery.

  1. Really freaky!
    Indira gandhi coin is way straight forward (read ugly and weird enough) to see it's fake. But Ambedkar coin is very neatly faked.
    Have you come across the fisheries 1 Rupee coin? With my limited knowledge, I assume it's fake. It was on ebay sometime back. Here is the link:

    I also came across, 8 anna fake coin and 1911 George Silver 1 Rupee fake coins.I can send you snaps to be posted here so that it can help others to be aware of those fakes too.

  8. Hi,

    say some few years back had heard the rumour about indira gandhi one rupee coin with rudraksh beads had some strange power in them.
    when put near a 0 bulb it would make the bulb blink or even blast. some saying the one rupee indira gandhi coin with 9 rudraksh was minted by our government. A very limited quantity. The people who have the very same coin are very fortunate. how true is this? it had even come on news channels that people are crazy behind the coin and when they have the coin they perform some ritual whcih turns that coin into lots of money.

  11. 1) the fisheries and RBI 50 paise are real, rest coins are fake.
    2)Iyenagar note has 4 deer and not 5
    3)you need to know the value before buying. The notes are genuine but not having high value. 50 paise coins are also common.
