Rs 75 commemorative coin to be issued on 75th anniversary of Tricolour hoisting by Netaji Bose

On December 30 in the year 1943, Netaji Bose had hoisted the first Independent Indian flag in Andaman and Nicobar.

The government of India on 13th November announced that a ₹75 commemorative coin will be issued on the occasion of 75th anniversary of the hoisting of the Tricolour for the first time by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose at Port Blair.

On December 30 in the year 1943, Netaji Bose had hoisted the first Independent Indian flag in Andaman and Nicobar. On that occasion, he also had announced the islands to be first Indian territory free from British rule. At that time, the islands were under the control of Japan. The Axis powers had liberated the islands from British rule during the World War -II. Bose had renamed the Andaman island as Shaheed and Nicobar island as Swaraj. The Azad Hind flag was hoisted at Cellular Jail in Port Blair.

The finance ministry has issued a notification announcing the release of the coin. “The coin of seventy-five rupees denomination shall only be coined at the Mint for issue under the authority of the central government on the occasion of ’75th Anniversary of Hoisting of Tricolour’ for the first time by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose at Port Blair,” the notification says.

The coin will bear the portrait of Netaji saluting the flag in front of the cellular jail.  The words “75th Anniversary” will be depicted below the portrait. Words ‘First Flag Hoisting Day’ will be inscribed on the coin in Devanagari and English.

On October 21, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had hoisted the National Flag at Red Fort to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the formation of Azad Hind Government by Bose.
