  1. What is the difference between rare and scarce ?

  2. On this website while classifying certain coins, I have used a 4 point grade, plenty, scarce, rare and very rare. However these are just play of words and nothing much.

  3. Dear Admin,

    This Proof Set is not seen in the list:

    India 1997 Inter-Parliamentary Conference

    I came across this set in the following link:,5033.45.html

    Do you have any info about this set?

  4. This is amongst the unissued set. There were no bookings. Few sets were distributed to dignitaries. Exact quantity unknown. Mostly seen outside India. The only coin to have double mint mark, i.e. 2 diamonds.

  5. Dear Admin,

    The info on proof sets in this website is fabulous. Is it possible to add one more information: number of sets issued mint-wise.

    This would enable the coin collectors to know which sets are rare.

    Thanking you in advance.
