BCCI launches toss coin to commemorate Gandhi’s birthday:


Commemorating Mahatama Gandhi's
146th birth anniversary, the BCCI will
launch a specially-minted toss coin with
the images of the Father of the Nation
and Nelson Mandela for the India-South
Africa cricket series. Designed
exclusively for the Freedom Series, the
20 grams gold-plated sterling silver
coin will be used by India and South
Africa for all the formats of the game
played with each other in India or South
Africa for perpetuity.
The coin has the photographs of
Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela
laser engraved on it and will be
launched by the BCCI Secretary Anurag
Thakur along with the two captains, MS
Dhoni and Faf du Plessis, at the start of
the first T20I match at Dharamsala
tonight.
Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela
proved to the world that freedom could
be achieved through the path of non-
violence – a true symbol of peace, truth
and harmony.
