5 Rupee Coin 1989


The first five rupee coin was first minted in Independent India in 1985 it was not a circulation coin it was a commemorative coin issued  on the death of Indira Gandhi.It was a copper-nickel coin  the size of the coin was very big ,the diameter of the coin was 30mm.The normal coins in circulation were 22-25 mm.The coin made of the same metal was issued in 1989 to commemorate the Centennial of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru's birth.The size was also similar to the 1985 coin .The normal 5 rupee coin for circulation was first minted in 1992 having a smaller size.

Jawaharlal Nehru was born on 14th November ,1889 and the year marked the 1st Centennial of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru , a set of three coins of 100, 5 and 1 rupee were issued with his portrait in 1989. .The government issued this coin as a respect to the first prime minister of India who was also the father of Smt Indira Gandhi on whose death  a similar 5 rupee coin was issued .The same coin was issued on the death of Indira Gandhi and the Centennial of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru's birth.
The coin is a large coin showing one side of  Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru's face the portrait  is of right side of the face similar to that of the coin of Indira Gandhi potrayed on the right side unlike the Queen Victoria in the British India coins where she is portrayed on the left side .The image of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru is shown wearing a  Gandhi Topi(cap) and is shown wearing a Indian kurta wheras in the  1964 coin he is shown without the cap and only the face is shown
