Taj Mahal on Coins
Taj Mahal, the new seventh wonder of the world and the most beautiful monument of india has never appeared on the coins of India. It is strange but true. In 2005 on 300 years of completion of Taj Mahal commemorative coins were issued by the countries like Bhutan and Malta.
The first coin shown above is a silver proof coin of 500 Ngultrums from Bhutan. And the second picture is a 1000 lira coin from Malta. It is a silver and gold coin with only Taj Mahal portion in gold. Only limited pieces were minted for the collectors.
