4. In April this year, RBI had released a Rs. 10 coin to commemorate the one hundred twenty five years of National Archives of India. This face of the coin bears the image of National Archives Building in the centre.
“It is clarified that the Reserve Bank puts into circulation, the coins minted by mints, which are under the Government of India. These coins have distinctive features to reflect various themes of economic, social and cultural values and are introduced from time to time,” said RBI in a statement.
The third design of the ₹10 coin, minted since 2011 features the lettering “भारत” on left and “INDIA” on right on the outer ring, and the year of mint and mint mark below. At the center part of the coin’s obverse is the Lion capital with the lettering “सत्यमेव जयते” below it. On the reverse it features 10 notches with the ₹ sign below it, and the number 10 below the ₹ sign.  
The second design featured two horizontal lines. The coin featured the lettering “भारत” and “INDIA” on the top, with Lion Capital in the middle and year of printing at bottom on the obverse. The reverse of the coin featured 15 notches and numeral 10 in the middle and at below line the word Rupees in English and रुपये in Hindi was written.  
So far, the Reserve Bank of Indian has issued Rs 10 coins in 14 designs and the public has been informed of their distinctive features. All these coins are legal tender and can be accepted for transactions. The coins minted by the government mints have distinctive features to reflect various themes of economic, social and cultural values and are put into circulation from time to time.
While states like Uttar Pradesh have such immense number of coins in the circulation that every month or two, there surfaces a rumour which tends to cut them off the circulation, other states face a shortage of the coins. However, in recent times, the shortage in other areas has improved.
Recently, fake news about Rs. 10 coins made waves on social media and WhatsApp that claimed an enormous number of fake coins had been dispensed in the market by Pakistani agency ISI. As anyone would expect it, this rumor fired a fury in the market, and the shopkeepers and vendors started to refuse the ₹ ten coins in the transaction. The condition went so worse that RBI had to come forward to issue a statement regarding this.
