Numisbing Releases Limited Edition Euro Souvenir Indian Notes to Mark Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th Birth


A UAE-based company will globally release 12 bank notes of zero value, the first ever limited edition commemorative series to celebrate 150th birth anniversary year of Mahatma Gandhi, India’s Father of the Nation. The first two notes of the 12-part series, with just 5,000 pieces to be printed in each design, will go on sale at select outlets globally and online platforms while the remaining will be released in phases till October 2.



The notes have been designed by Dubai-based Indian artist Akbar Saheb, who is also the illustrator for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s book ‘Mann Ki Baat’. “The 12 notes will display memorable moments from the personal and political life of Gandhi”, says, Ramkumar Sarangapani, Founder, Numisbing Group. He also adds, “Initially, we thought we would do just one commemorative note, but then realized that Gandhi’s life is full of inspirations and confining all of them to one would not be possible, or fair to the great man. So we decided to stagger it into a series of 12”.

Authorized by the European Central Bank, the zero euro notes are printed in the same level of security printers as other normal euro currency notes, carry all security features. Also, to ensure that these notes do not enter normal market circulation, they have been marked ‘0’. In the past, a similar initiative was taken, where India issued commemorative notes with the image of Gandhi in 1969 to celebrate his 100th birth anniversary and was provided for public to use.
