At the opening of Bharat Mandapam at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled G20 postage stamps and coins to commemorate India's G20 Presidency. The G20 logo and the Indian government's "One Earth. One Family. One Future" campaign concept served as the inspiration for the designs of the coins and stamps. The two 20-cent postage stamps honour India's G20 Presidency from December 1, 2022, to November 30, 2023.
The first G20 Commemorative Postage Stamp demonstrates togetherness and the collective will of G20 members to achieve inclusive, decisive, and action-oriented outcomes under India's Presidency. The second G20 Commemorative Stamp, rendered in gold color, represents India's diversity, inclusiveness, and rich cultural heritage. It takes inspiration from the lotus, the national flower of India, as represented in India's G20 Presidency Logo.
Also marking this milestone of India's G20 Presidency, two G20 Commemorative Coins of denominations 75 and 100 were released by the Prime Minister. The values of these coins represent the culmination of India's 75 years of independence and the start of "Amrit Kaal," India's journey toward 100 years of independence. The G20 commemorative coins include stylized representations of India's G20 emblem and theme, and each one is constructed of a quaternary alloy of silver, nickel, zinc, and copper.
