Mumbai, 23 January 2023: Commemorating the 126th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, MMTC-PAMP, India’s only London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) Good Delivery gold & silver refinery, has introduced a new product in its range of silver portfolio, with the launch of exquisitely crafted 999.9 purest ‘Netaji’ silver bar in 50g denomination. His birth anniversary is known as ‘Parakram Divas’ and is celebrated to inspire people of this country, especially the youth, to act with fortitude in the face of adversity.
An Indian freedom fighter and revolutionary, Subhas Chandra Bose was also popularly known as Netaji. This title was conferred to him by Indian and German officials at the Special Bureau of India in Berlin.
“It is only on the basis of undiluted nationalism and of perfect justice and impartiality that the Indian Army of Liberation can be built up.”
Born on 23 January 1897 in Cuttack, Odisha, he was an ardent follower of Swami Vivekananda. He constituted the Azad Hind Fauj or the Indian National Army in 1943 to free India from imperialist rule and inspired many to fight for India’s freedom. He was an active member of the youth wing of the Indian National Congress and was also the President of the Indian National Congress from 1938 to 1939.
This exquisitely crafted silver bar is a special edition tribute to the selfless service of the firebrand freedom fighter and a memento of his courage and resilience. Crafted from pure silver, this 50g bar features an intricate depiction of Netaji on one side and the mention of the 126th Parakram Divas along with the coin’s 999.9 purity credentials on the other.
