India’s numismatic heritage is the most variegated and richest in the entire world. Yet, it is both surprising and sad that, albeit India boasts of a vibrant formal market in other spheres of collectibles such as Art, Sculpture, Textiles and Antiquities, a formal coin market is virtually non-existent. What transpires in the informal numismatic market is only a fraction of the potential that exists in our country. We think it is time that we not only take due cognizance of our potentialities, but also use our vigor and enterprise to maximize its usance. We must not only create wealth but also spread it far and wide.
