India 5 rupees 2010 Brihadeeswarar varieties

Yesterday I got several pieces of this new circulating commemorative from India.
I could easily see that there are two varieties.
The reverses are exactly the same, both with Mumbai Diamond Mint mark, but there are two obverses, one with high detail (right) and the other one with that soft detail of some of the latest Indian coins (left):

Letters in word "RUPEES":
