Ten Rupee Coins

Ten Rupee Coins are now introduced by the Goverment of India.
Here is its design:-
Obverse :
This face of the coin is divided into three portions. The centre portion shallbear the “Lion Capitol” of Ashoka Pillar with the legend ‘सत्यमेव जयते’ inscribed belowand the prominent international Numerals “10″ indicating the denomination.The top portion contains word “भारत” in Hindi and “India” in English. The bottom portion contains the year in International Numerals.
Reverse :
This face of the coin contains the visuals showing stylised representation of“Unity in Diversity”, a defining characteristic of our country. The symbol shall beseen as four heads sharing a common body. It shall be thought of as people from allfour parts of the country coming together under one banner and identifying with one nation. The visual code helps the user connect the visual with an individual denomination, which makes the process of identification quicker. The left upperperiphery contains the words “Ten Rupees” written in Hindi and English.

Here is how it looks:-
