Jawaharlal is the only personality who has Indian coins minted on him with his profile facing left as well as right.
Also, notice that in the manner of the British monarchs who after the restoration of the monarchy when Charles II took over from Oliver Cromwell, each succeeding British monarch faces in the opposite direction as a matter of tradition (with a few aberrations/exceptions), similarly, while the Nehru-Gandhi family patriarch Motilal faces left, his son Jawaharlal faces left in the earlier coins issued upon his passing away as well as right in later coins, while his granddaughter Indira faces right on coins issued shortly after her assassination and his great grandson Rajiv faces left !!
