The commemorative banknote of Rs75 is available for the general public from September 30 (today), which was released by the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) on August 14th to mark Pakistan’s 75th Independence Day.
At a ceremony held at the SBP offices in Karachi on August 14, 2022, the design of this commemorative banknote was presented.
The SBP announced in a statement that starting on September 30, the general public can get the commemorative Rs75 banknote from SBP BSC offices and commercial banks’ branches.
As a result, the Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Allama Sir Muhammad Iqbal, Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah, and Sir Syed Ahmed Khan are shown on the banknote’s obverse, according to the statement.
According to SBP, the reverse of the banknote emphasises the nation’s commitment to combating climate change and its effects on Pakistan. This issue has become even more urgent in light of the unprecedented loss brought on by the recent torrential rains and flooding that affected large portions of Pakistan, according to SBP.
The portraits of the national animals Markhor and Deodar on the reverse also draw attention to the threat of extinction and the necessity of protecting these species.
