Amritsar, April 11
A special logo dedicated to the 400th birth anniversary of Guru Tegh Bahadur has been designed by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC).
This logo would also be embossed on the commemorative gold and silver coins dedicated to the centenary.
The logo depicts the structure of Guru ka Mahal, the birthplace of Guru located in Amritsar. Beneath it is an inscription of the 400-year-old Prakash Purb and the verse of gurbani relating to the Guru at the top. This logo will be used by the SGPC during the centenary celebrations.
SGPC spokesperson and deputy secretary Kulwinder Singh Ramdas said a special panel was constituted in this regard, which has designed this logo and dedicated it to the occasion.
A separate panel has also been constituted to decide upon the commemorative coins. These commemorative coins will be of gold and silver. Of these, gold coins will weigh 5 grams and 10 grams, whereas the silver coins will weigh 25 grams and 50 grams.
Simarjit Singh, deputy secretary, Dharam Prachar Committee, said the work was underway and these coins would be readied soon and offered to devotees who intend to purchase these.
On one side of the coin will be a picture of Gurdwara Guru ka Mahal and on the other that of Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib located in Delhi.
Gold and silver commemorative coins were also released on the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, which were purchased by a large number of devotees as a centenary commemoration.
Recently, a proposal has been prepared by the Centre for releasing special commemorative stamps, postal envelopes and commemorative coins dedicated to the occasion. The SGPC had already submitted designing quotient to the Centre’s panel, as desired. The outline of the centenary celebrations has been curtailed due to Covid threat. The main function is being held on May 1.
