The Indian 10-rupee coin ( ₹ 10) is a denomination of the Indian rupee. The ₹10 coin is the highest-denomination coin minted in India since its introduction in 2005.

All ₹10 coins containing with and without the rupee currency sign are legal tender, as stated by the Reserve Bank of India. Along with the standard designs, there are 21 different designs for this denomination and are minted as circulating commemorative coins, this is used alongside the 10 rupee banknote.

For rupee ten coin, RBI previously issued notice for it being the valid currency and warned people about facing legal action for rejecting such coins.
