Coin and Paper Money Collecting/2550 buddha jayanthi coins


can we sell this coin above face value?????

There were 3 types of 2550 buddha Jayanthi coins.
The Rs 5 circulation coin in circulation condition is only worth Face Value.

The Rs1500 and Rs2000 Silver Proof NCLT coins are worth lot more than face
value, if it is still in it's original plastic container and it has not ever
been removed from it and touched by hand which would have left finger prints.
