Many stamps and coins are being issued on Maharana pratap in india which is a pride for mewar . Mewar philately society founder president vinay bhanawat told us about various stamps and coins set are issued but in limited number which makes it uncirculated among common man . It is only available for collectors . Pratap is not just a king of mewar state , he is known for his braveness and sacrifice in every part of world .
Malta government has issued biggest coin on pratap of 1 kg silver featuring pratap on one side and government symbol on other side . They issued 100 such coin . Vinay bhanawat has one of this coin in his collection . As other nations are issuing such coins why cant Indian government feature any currency note with picture of Maharana pratap who is undoubtedly the first freedom fighter of India .
Previously Indian government has issued a set of three coins of Rs 1,10,100 denomination in the year 2003 and rs 10 coin in the year 2005 but unfortunately these coins were issued in limited number and did not reached to common people and became a collection item.
For this reason Vinay bhanawat from udaipur has requested to Prime minister Mr Narendra modi to issue banknote featuring maharana pratap , the pride of India. It will be true tribute to the real soldier of independence.
