Sachin Tendulkar limited edition gold coins released

Published Add your comment

The face of superstar Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar has been engraved on limited edition 24-carat gold coins launched at an event in Mumbai this week.

Tendulkar was in attendance to unveil the 10-gram coin, of which 100,000 have been manufactured, and will be available to buy at a cost of 34,000 rupees (£406) each.

"I have had many golden moments on the field. There are some wonderful memories but this is something really different," Tendulkar said at the launch on Monday.

He added: "I like to buy gold. It was a thing to have nice gold chain around the neck and I did that as a teenager."

Tendulkar, meanwhile, was forced to miss Mumbai Indians' encounter with Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday after the 40-year-old suffered a tendon injury to his right-hand.

The veteran batsman has struggled for runs in the Indian Premier League this season - making just one half century at the top of the order, although his inconsistent form has not prevented Mumbai from reaching second in the rankings.

Rohit Sharma has been the star performer with the bat from Mumbai, having scored 501 runs at an average of over 50 to place the India international in fourth position in the race for the Orange Cap.
