India 2 and 10 Paise 1957 to 1993
There are 100 paise in 1 rupee. Many of India's 2 and 10 paise coins have the wavy-edge flower shape shown in the picture. Other denominations, such as 1, 3, 5, 20, 25, and 50 paise, use round, hexagonal, and square shapes.
These are modern coins made of non-precious metal. As such, they are worth very little. If you have a coin that looks especially nice or is fully uncirculated, then collectors will pay a small premium for it.
The 1968C and 1969B 2 paise and the 1967H, 1974H, 1979B, 1980C, and 1982C 10 paise are slightly more valuable.
