Sushilkumar Agrawal, CEO of Ultra Hindi, recently launched an online “museum and collectorspedia” for collectors of coins, banknotes and stamps of India.
The portal – dubbed Mintage World – launched during the 25th Annual Shukla Day Coin and Philately Fair 2016, India’s largest combined display of numismatics, philately and notaphily. This year’s gathering took place April 22-24 at the World Trade Centre in Cuffe Parade, South Mumbai.
“We live in an age when the younger generation spends all its time before a cellphone or computer, mainly on social networking sites,” said Agrawal. “This online museum will reintroduce them to hobbies like stamp and coin collection by giving information like where and why a certain coin was minted, its historicity, the material that was used-whether gold or silver-as well as its size and shape and the inscription engraved upon it. A separate section will provide information about new releases in various parts of the world while another section will provide details of coin auctions.”
