A new silver coin bearing retired cricket legend Sachin Tendulkarβ€˜s face embossed on them along with the number of Tests (200) he had played was launched by Valuemart Gold & Jewels, in association with Diamond India.

15,921 coins were released, each minted in 200 gm silver corresponding to the number of runs that the batting legend had scored in his 24-year Tests career between 1989 and 2013, were released in the presence of Tendulkar.

Sachin also said that he has the habbit of collecting coins in his childhood. β€œAs a kid I did collect coins and stamps. But there was a stage in life when I had better things to do, my passion changed a bit. Rather than collecting coins, collecting runs were a better option which would give meaning and direction to life,” he said.

β€œI have had my bit of collecting coins with my childhood friends when I started playing, but they were different coins. I would like to reiterate that Achrekar Sir gave me those coins,” he said.
