India | PM Modi | G20 | stamps | coins

To mark India’s G20 Presidency, Prime Minister Narendra Modi released G20 postage stamps and coins at the inauguration of Bharat Mandapam in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

The designs of both the coins and stamps draw inspiration from India’s G20 Logo and theme of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ or ‘One Earth. One Family. One Future’. The two Postage Stamps of denomination 20 each, celebrate India’s G20 Presidency period from December 1, 2022- 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 colour, 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 “AmritKaal,” 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.
