Centenary Of Mahatma Gandhi’s Return From South Africa Commemorative Coin by SPMCIL

Commemorative Coins :

India Government Mint, Mumbai also manufactures commemorative coins apart from manufacturing circulation coins. These coins are issued to commemorate events of historical and social importance and to celebrate various accomplishments of public and private organizations. India Government Mint, Mumbai has been releasing commemorative coins since 1964. The commemorative coins issued by the Mint are of very high quality and have a great demand among coin collectors and numismatists.

Commemorative coins are of two types

Proof Coins

Uncirculated Coins

Proof Coins:

Proof coins are the high quality commemorative coins which have a frozen effect on the surface design of the coin with a mirror finish. These coins are marked with the symbol ‘M’ to indicate that they are manufactured at Mumbai Mint. These coins are sold at a premium price as they are manufactured with high quality standards and have high numismatic value.

Uncirculated Coins:

Uncirculated coins are the high quality commemorative coins which have mirror finish on the surface but without any frozen effect on the design. These coins are marked with a diamond symbol to indicate they are stamped at Mumbai Mint. The uncirculated coins are also sold at premium but they are priced a little lower than the proof coins.

History

In 1964 production of commemorative coins was started. The first commemorative coin was in the memory of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

Centenary of Mahatma Gandhi’s Return from South Africa

Mahatma Gandhi was twenty four years old when he arrived in South Africa as the legal counsel of Indian traders based in the city of Pretoria. He spent more than two decades in South Africa, where he faced the racial discriminations directed at all coloured people like; being thrown out of train at Pietermaritzburg station, being barred from several hotels, being asked to remove his turban in Durban Court etc. Gandhiji also established the “Tolstoy Farm” near Johannesburg in 1910 where he nurtured his policy of peaceful resistance. These events were a turning point in Gandhi’s life in shaping his social activism and awakening him to social injustice. Gandhi’s ideas took shape, and the concept of Satyagraha matured during his struggle in South Africa for the Indians living there.

After witnessing racism, prejudice and injustice against Indians in South Africa, Gandhiji questioned his place in society and his people’s standing in the British Empire, following which he returned back to India in 1915. Gandhiji returned to India with formidable reputation to lead the Indian masses struggling for freedom from colonial domination through civil disobedience and non-violence, which proved to be highly effective moral weapon in India’s struggle for Independence.
