Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched a special series of coins that are also ‘visually impaired friendly’. The coins of Re 1, Rs 2, 5, 10 and 20 denominations will have the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav (AKAM) design. They are not commemorative coins and will be part of circulation. These new series of coins will remind people of the goal of amrit kal and motivate people to work towards the development of the country.
Meanwhile, lenders like HDFC Bank and Axis Bank said these special coins will be distributed through select branches. AKAM is an initiative of the Government of India to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of independence.
