Britain’s premium luxury goods brand East India Company has issued an exclusive legal tender gold coin worth 12,000 pound sterling in honour of Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar.

The rare coin has been issued in honour of Tendulkar’s remarkable career spanning 24 years.

Only 210 gold coins, each weighing precisely 200g, are being issued to pay tribute to Tendulkar at a global level. Only very few will ever see this coin in the flesh, making them exceptionally rare and precious amongst thousands of fans who yearn to own a piece of the superstar’s legacy,” the London-based firm said in a statement.

“Every single 200g coin issued is a masterpiece in its own right. Exclusively presented in a custom made presentation box the coin is accompanied by an individually numbered and personally signed certificate of authenticity along with an autographed cricket bat by Sachin Tendulkar,” it added.


The issue of a ‘legal tender’ coin is an official mark of distinction given to individuals who have accomplished great achievements in human history.

The design of the coin has been handcrafted in great detail by one of the world’s most renowned coin designers Joaquin Jimenez, currently the Chief Engraver at Monnaie de Paris.

The canvas of the coin shows the latitude lines of the globe modelled in cricket stitching to represent the international stage of cricket.

The Gateway of India features to denote Tendulkar’s home city of Mumbai, where he started and completed his illustrious career.

The EIC is a multi-channel business dealing with fine food, precious metals, hospitality, publishing, fashion, art and jewelery.
