Sachin Tendulkar 1/4oz Gold Proof Coin
Released with the Sachin Tendulkar:
The rare coin has been issued in honour of Tendulkar’s remarkable career spanning 24 years. The issue of a ‘legal tender’ coin is an official mark of distinction given to individuals who have accomplished great achievements in human history.
The cricket icon himself and his 200th Test milestone are symbolically represented by Tendulkar’s autographed bat, helmet and the number 187 which he wore during his 200th and final Test at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai in November 2013, where he announced his retirement cheered on by thousands of his devoted fans during an emotional farewell.
Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar 200th Test Match’ reads the text. Queen Elizabeth II is embossed on the other side of the coin. The canvas of the coin shows the latitude lines of the globe modelled in cricket stitching to represent the international stage of cricket.
Tendulkar said he was honoured by the recognition: “All my life, I have had a dream of playing cricket for India. I am very fortunate to have lived this dream for the last 24 years. I am honoured to be recognised with the issue of these special coins, which have been impressively designed with a lot of thought,” Tendulkar said.
