India 1, 5, 20, and 100 Rupees  1989
India 1, 5, 20, and 100 Rupees 1989

These coins made of copper-nickel were released from Mumbai mint, in order to commemorate the birth centenary (1889-1989) of India's first Prime Minister, Jawahar Lal Nehru.

One rupee coins carry these catalog values:

1 RUPEE
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $2
fully uncirculated: $3

There are interesting die varieties in the 5 rupee coin which are well explained at this blog on India coin collecting [Press Here]. The varieties have to do with the size of the Prime Minister's portrait, the length of the 'R' serif, and the size of the teeth around the outer edge of the coin. It is an interesting study. The catalog prices for these coins go like this:

5 RUPEES (LARGE HEAD)
worn: $1 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $2
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $5

5 RUPEES (SMALL HEAD)
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
well preserved: $20
fully uncirculated: $40



20 RUPEES
worn: $1 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $5
fully uncirculated: $10

Refer to our Important Terminology page for information about converting catalog values to actual buy and sell values.

The 100 rupee coin contains 0.583 troy ounces of silver. To find its value, multiply the current price of silver by 0.583 to get base value (BV), then add collector premiums as follows

worn: BV
average circulated: BV
well preserved: BV + $5
fully uncirculated: BV + $20
