There is complaint that the bi-metal Rs.10 coin getting detached from the outer ring
You might generally expect a head or a tail when a tossed coin lands on the ground.
But if you are using a bi-metal Rs.10 coin, beware of the third possibility of it landing down into two pieces. Ever since the introduction of these bi-metal coins by the Reserve Bank of India in 2009, some traders in the city have been complaining about the centre piece, made of a combination of copper and nickel, getting detached from the outer ring made of copper, aluminium and nickel.
They also point out that mostly coins minted in 2011 were prone to such damage.
