Rs 10 a coin now

Reserve Bank of India has issued a new bimetallic 10 Rupee coin for circulation even as some people have expressed displeasure with replicating the Christian Crusader’s Cross’ on the coin.
The obverse side has the lion capitol with numeral 10 and year of manufacture. On reverse side, a double line cross with a dot in each pellet of cross and denomination written in Hindi and English around. The cross with the dots is closely similar to very much like the ‘Christian Cross’ on the Gold Coin issued by French king Louis the Pious (778 AD-840 AD).
