I have been observing since a week that nobody is accepting a Rs.10 coin in the market. Yesterday also after finishing my breakfast when I paid for the breakfast in Rs.10 coin the lady did not accept it. I got annoyed with her reply. She said 'No Sir, we are not accepting the Rs.10 coin.' I asked whether has she banned it or others also not accepting it. I came to know that many are not accepting in the byline shops of the area. I really wondered how can people ban the currency of countries voluntarily. Is there anything fishy about it. Because when the Govt., issued a 20 Paise coin some years back it was again stopped from circulation as there was some gold or some valuable metal content in it. Even now, there are certain ornaments in the market made of 20 paise coin metal which does not lose their shining. They are costly also. But, this is not the case with a Rs.10 coin. Afternoon I received a message from the Govt., of India confirming that the Rs.10 coin is in circulation. It is valid and nobody can deny acceptance of the coin or they will be jailed. Today after my breakfast I showed the message to the lady and gave her the Rs.10 coin which she unpleasantly accepted it. I did not understand the reason for her sorry face.

Is it just one shop or many shops? Perhaps there are too many fake coins around, and she has unknowingly accepted many fake coins that are rejected by the banks.
