Rs 10 a coin now

RBI introduced the Christian cross design first with 2 Rupee coin issued in 2006. Rightwing hindus including Narendra Modi have vociferously opposing the design.
This design has been prepared by National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad and they claim that the cross determines the theme of Unity in Diversity. The outer side metal is Nickel-Bronze and the inner side metal is Ferrous Steel. The weight of the coin would be 8 grams and the diameter would be 28 mm.
The coins are being minted at mainly Noida and Mumbai mint. The 10 Rupee coins were supposed to be released three years ago, but were delayed due to some technical issues.
