Dear Maharajas and Prabhus,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
ISKCON Communications & SP125 Committee are happy to inform you all that
the Government of India has issued the rules and a notification to legally
recognize the Rs 125 commemorative coin being minted by the Government on
the historic occasion of Srila Prabhupada’s 125th Vyasa Puja (birth
The Indian government’s official Gazette Notification is attached herein
for your kind information.
After a ten-month exercise, the procedural formalities from several
departments have been completed. We are hopeful that the coin would be
released by the Government of India around Srila Prabhupada’s Vyasa Puja.
Each coin (Proof version) would cost Rs 4,600 + shipping charges and would
come in an elegant box along with a small booklet describing the life and
legacy of Srila Prabhupada.
We request all the temples in India to place their orders immediately as
the manufacturing process takes nearly 30 days to complete. The last day
for placing the order is 31 July 2021.
For temples/devotees outside of India, please see below for information on
how to order.
We thank Vrajendranandan Prabhu, Haresh Govinda Prabhu (AHM), Vamshidhari
Prabhu (AHM), and Pradyumana Priya Prabhu for their help in gathering
letters of support which helped in making this coin happen.
