  2. 3-fold Packing (1 coin) UNC – Rs. 3,400
  3. 3-fold Packing (1 coin) Proof – Rs.3,200

Proof coins are the highest quality coins produced by a mint, and are not intended for circulation. They are struck from a new, highly-polished die on a polished planchet, and sometimes in a metal different from a coin of identical denomination struck for circulation.

Proof coinage refers to special early samples of a coin issue, historically made for checking the dies (as in demonstrating that something is true) and for archival purposes. Nowadays proofs are often struck in greater numbers specially for coin collectors (numismatists). Nearly all countries have issued proof coinage.

UNC stands for “uncirculated” and refers to a coin that has never been circulated in the money supply and shows no signs of wear.

Uncirculated coins are legal tender but are not used as money. They can be purchased from a mint, local coin dealer, or bank.
