To commemorate the 150th Birth Anniversary of Motilal Nehru, the Government of India decided to have a special commemorative coin set issue and opened bookings for the same for a period of two months in November, 2013. Received my ordered set from the India Government Mint in April, 2014.

Motilal Nehru (6 May 1861 – 6 February 1931) was an Indian lawyer, an activist of the Indian National Movement and an important leader of the Indian National Congress, who also served as the Congress President twice, 1919–1920 and 1928–1929. He was the founder patriarch of India's most powerful political family, the Nehru-Gandhi family.
