The Reserve Bank on Thursday announced plans to put into circulation 10 rupee coins to commemorate the International Day of Yoga.
The coin bears the logo of the International Day of Yoga, with the inscription Saamanjasya evam shanthi ke liye yog “ in Devnagri script and “yoga for harmony and peace” around the logo. At the bottom of the logo the date June 21 is inscribed, according to an official statement.
The inscription Anthar rashtriya yoga divas in Devnagri script is on the left periphery and “international day of yoga” in English on the right periphery is written on this side of the coin. The obverse of the coin bears the Lion Capitol of Ashoka Pillar in the centre with the legend Sathyamev Jayate inscribed below, the statement said.
This is flanked on the left periphery with the word Bharat in Devnagri script and on the right periphery flanked with the word “INDIA” in English.
The coins have been minted by the Central government and are legal tender as provided in The Coinage Act 2011. They will be put into circulation shortly, according to the statement.
In early June, the Finance Ministry notified these design details in the Gazette of India.
