FEATURING
front: Ashoka Pillar Lion Capitol

Lettering:
भारत INDIA
सत्यमेव जयते

The State Emblem of India, as the national emblem of India is called, is an adaptation of the Lion Capital of Ashoka at Sarnath. It was adopted on 26 January 1950, the day that India became a republic.

The Ashoka Chakra (wheel) on its base features in the centre of the national flag of India.

The actual Sarnath capital features four Asiatic lions standing back to back, symbolizing power, courage, confidence and pride mounted on a circular base. At the bottom is a horse and a bull, and at its centre is a beautiful wheel (Dharma chakra). The abacus is girded with a frieze of sculptures in high relief of an elephant (of the east), a bull (of the west), a horse (of the south), and a lion (of the north), separated by intervening wheels, over a lotus in full bloom, exemplifying the fountainhead of life and creative inspiration. Carved from a single block of sandstone, the polished capital is crowned by the Wheel of the Law (Dharma Chakra).

back: Denomination and date below Rupee symbol flanked by Lotus flowers
