Sachin Tendulkar Honoured with Gold Coin

Thursday, June 26, 2014

British East India Company has made a special legal tender gold coin worth £12,000 in honour of the cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar. This has been given as a commemorative coin for Tendulkar’s amazing career of 24 years. There will only be 210 gold coins weighing 200g each to pay tribute globally. It is said only a few people will see this coin in real life, making them very rare within a large amount of fans who will want a piece of the action.

Each of the 210 coins is given in a custom made box, a personally signed certificate of authenticity with an autographed cricket bat from the player. The subject of ‘legal tender’ is a mark of distinction given to people who have achieved great things in history. Sachin’s 200th test was shown some appreciation by an autographed bat, helmet and his number 187 which he was wearing during the 200th final test match in Mumbai during November 2013, where he declared his retirement.
