Ten percent of a Rupee

12th October 2010

Why does it say what part of Rupee a coin is? It used to be like this on all coins, five paisa had "Twentieth of a Rupee" written on it 25 paise a quarter and so on. Was it to help people with poor mathematical skills in understanding the worth of a coin? If so, shouldn't the coin also tell you "which" tenth part of a Rupee it was... maybe they thought if you are that dumb, you are not likely to be in possession of money.

This reminds me of Hitchhikers Guide to Galaxy. It was initially a trilogy but then a fourth part was written so it changed from trilogy to "a trilogy in four parts" and when the fifth part was released, it was called "a book that gives the word trilogy a whole new meaning"
