Legendary actor Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao has a special space in films and politics as well. Very rarely we see personalities shining in both fields. But NTR achieved that and entered the history pages with his achievements. His Telugu Desam Party batted for the self-respect of Telugus and proved that Telugu people are not Madrasis.
Considering his valuable contributions, the Union government decided to print a special coin on NTR senior as a bid to honour him. His centenary celebrations were celebrated recently in a big way and then the announcement of a dedicated Rs 100 coin was made.
Now the news is that the special coin will be released in the market soon as an official gazette is said to have been released. The reports say that the coin will be launched soon and made available to the people. However, it would cost over Rs 4,000 for a single coin.
Those who want to get the coin should have to visit the RBI office or any bank. Along with the coin, the busters would get a brochure that would mention the life history and achievements of the political superstar.
The reason behind the special coin costing over Rs 4,000 is that it would be made using multiple metals like Silver, Copper, Nickel, and Zinc. The coin is likely to cost Rs 4160 per unit. As the coin is released on the centenary celebrations of the legendary personality, it would mark the centenary year mentioned from his birth year 1923 to the current year 2023.
