I'm asking about this question:
What is this coin and what is its value in INR?
The question was originally closed as off-topic by five users, and when it has been placed in the reopen queue by other users, it has received additional "Leave Closed" votes.
Can someone explain this to me? This question is literally about money; the coin in question is legal tender. And since the money is in the possession of a person, that makes it "personal finance" by definition. How can this be considered off-topic?
One close voter left a comment implying that this is a trivial, obvious question. "Trivial question" is not a close reason, but even if it was a reason to close, the answer is not obvious. A high rep user posted the first answer to this question, but deleted it later after he realized that his answer was wrong.
Another close voter left a comment saying that this was a numismatics question. Numismatics is not inherently off topic, but regardless, this is not a numismatics question. The question is not asking us about the rarity or condition of the coin; this is a legal tender coin, and the question is asking about the legal tender value, not the collectible value.
