Currency recognition and classification is one essential task to do. Both paper and coin currency play important role in transactions in everyday life.

This dataset is a collection of images and their respective labels containing multiple Indian coins of different denominations and their variations. The dataset only contains images of one side of each coin (Tail side) which contains the denomination value.
