· Very good coins: These coins that continued to be less in the circulation, but which are legend on the obverse and the reverse parts are legible without taking the help of the magnifying glasses. The figure and the letters should be tangible in case it is touched by your index finger. Besides, there should not be any denture or cut marks and these should not spot any chemical. These coins are the most valuable ones, so these should be kept very carefully as these lose their luster and shine by rubbing with each other.
· Good coins: These coins remain in much circulation but these are mainly legend on both the sides and these are quite easily legible. These have no denture or the cut mark on these coins.
· Un-circulated or UNC coins: These are basically meant for the daily use by the general public. These are mainly used by the Reserve Bank of India. All these coins are mainly uncirculated during the time of issuance. These coins are mainly issued by the collectors of the India Government Mints.
