Pakistan is celebrating its 75 year of independence, and the State Bank of Pakistan has released a commemorative banknote worth 75 rupees to mark the nation’s diamond jubilee.
The special note was first announced by the central bank earlier today on Twitter, along with the statement, “The note will be available for public issuance starting September 30, 2022.”
The Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, Allama Muhammad Iqbal, and Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah images appear on the emerald green banknote appropriately. The portraits represent the freedom fight of Pakistan’s forefathers.
The national animals Markhor and Deodar are represented in the vignette on the back, which was created by young and upcoming artist Sara Khan, underlining the significance of protecting our environment and Pakistan’s distinctive flora and wildlife.
This is the unique banknote:
Following the SBP Board’s recommendations, the federal government accepted the banknote in compliance with the SBP Act of 1956.
The State Bank of Pakistan’s internal banknote committee came up with the color scheme, portraits, vignettes, and public service message, which was then incorporated by De La Rue’s banknote designers in the United Kingdom into the final banknote design.
The note also has numerous security measures, such as raised printing on the portraits that can be felt with your fingers, a watermark of Quaid-e- Azam’s and the number 75, Pureimage security thread with pulsing holographic rainbow effect, and 75 numeral micro-lettering, among others.
Here are all the security features of the commemorative note:
- The raised printing can be felt by running your fingers across the portraits of: Quaid a Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, Allama Muhammad Iqbal and Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah
