Truth Alone Triumphs

I have written in my previous post about type three being the standard obverse design since decimalisation in 1957.  This design was modified by addition of  the words Satyameva Jayate ( Truth alone triumphs) below the lion capital, in Devnagari script.
First coin to be issued with this modified design was twenty paise of 1982. Since then, Satyameva Jayate has been part of the obverse design, except for a few cases of commemorative coins in which design did not permit inclusion of the phrase.
