Movie exec launches virtual ‘collectorspedia’ for coins, banknotes, stamps of India

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.”
