Details

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.

For almost a quarter of a century, Sachin Tendulkar, the undoubted Global Ambassador of International Cricket, has inspired new talent and supporters alike across the Commonwealth and beyond. He now joins the ranks of ‘Sporting Icons’, who are far and few in between to have been honoured with the issue of a legal tender coin.

Preserved for generations to come, this legal tender coin issue tells a powerful story. A reminder of what can be achieved with unfaltering faith and sheer determination.

’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.’ 

The entire history of cricket in India and the sub-continent as a whole is based on the existence and development of the British Raj via the East India Company. The East India Company was the means by which cricket was introduced into India; and consequently in Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

As the company expanded its influence and trade routes across India it took with it this very British past time, and cricket ‘hot spots’ developed at strategic locations such as Calcutta (Kolkata) and Bombay (Mumbai) that remain today. The first distinct mention of cricket being played anywhere in the sub-continent is an account of English sailors of the East India Company written in 1737.
