Click for Coins

26 June 2016

Mintage World, a dedicated online museum on India's vast collection of coins (numismatics), stamps (philately) and paper currency (notaphily) was officially launched earlier in the year. Then earlier in the week I received a press release stating that Mintage World has launched a docudrama on the history of Yoga and various stamps and coins that have been launched around it on the eve of the International Yoga Day. It has been launched on their website as well as in the Youtube channel. The docudrama is a journey back in time, narrating the history of yoga and the implementation of International Yoga Day on June 21. Talk of co-incidences, the Philately Bureau of the Department of Post also celebrates its Platinum Jubilee on June 21.
