10 Rupee Coins To Be Approved Today

A meeting of the Federal Cabinet will be held today on the instructions of PM Nawaz Sharif. The meeting will discuss the induction of the Rs. 10 coin and the revision of the design of the Rs. 5 coin among other things.

The rumblings of introducing a Rs.10 coin are not new. Previously there were plans to put out a Rs. 10 coin to commemorate the 1st death anniversary of Benazir Bhutto. In 2008, the State Bank issued 300,000 of the commemorative coins bearing Benazir’s portrait and inscribed with the phrase “Daughter of the East – Honourable Benazir Bhutto” in Urdu.


Sustainable Development Goals Plan

A sustainable development program will also be given the go ahead during the meeting. The cabinet will be approving the recommendations put forward by the Cabinet Committees regarding restructuring and privatization. Prime Minister’s Sustainable Development Goals Plan will also be given the go-ahead at the meeting.

A 15 point agenda will be discussed during the meeting which includes health facilities for the underprivileged as well. The meeting was originally held on Saturday but the decisions were left pending until Wednesday. Attendants included Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and Minister for Petroleum Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

Energy Projects

Yesterday, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif addressed the Cabinet Committee on Energy in Islamabad. He said that the ongoing power projects will be able to meet electricity demands in Pakistan. He added that Pakistan has not seen such a huge investment in the energy sector, the boost in electricity generation will also increase economic activities.

Secretary of Water and Power Younus Dhaga mentioned that all ongoing power projects will be completed by the March 2018.

Concluding Thoughts

Many people are already debating the merits and demerits of introducing a Rs. 10 for common use. Some believe that paper money is easier to handle and that the Rs. 10 coin would contribute to devaluation of the same. Coins are harder to keep track of and that seems to be the general consensus amongst Pakistanis. However, the Rs. 10 coin could prove to be more resilient and durable as compared to its paper version.

Disclaimer: The final design of the Rs. 10 coin is yet to be unveiled.

  • not liked.. what is the role of BNB on currency of Pakistan??? there should be some Pakistani Hero not Political hero. Why not Fatimah Jinnah?

    • Please don’t call BEnazir political hero … It’s more of a corruption heroine

          • see. aap k jazbaat say qata nazar..

            Currency mein BNB ka koi kaam nhi.. balkeh Pakistan ki taraqqi mein koi kaam nhi.. to currency mein us ki photo lagany ka mqsad samj nhi aaya.. han albaat Pakistan POst tickets bana dety. woh theek hay. lakin currency mein sirf or sirf MUhammad Ali Jinnah hi ki picture bananhy chieya.. ya koi bhi na bany.

      • benazir was the unfortunate victim and pawn of whoever runs PPP from the shadows! just like her brother and her father. Calling her a martyr for democracy is another game PPP leadership is playing, when people grow tired of that BS guess who is going to be their next sacrifice! pathetic!

    • But history will keep repeating itself and deeds of people will be mentioned again and again.

  • Lo ji ab fakeer 10 rupay b nahin loya karyn gay. Lagta hao 5000 ka b theepa jald aaye ga

    • wo din door nahi jab Nawaz hukomat “Sunny leon” pa b coin nikal dai gai………..

  • Coins are already too hard to handle. Most importantly the 5 rupee coin has invited a lot of thieves who get away with keeping that money in their pockets.

  • By introducing Rs. 10 coin it would further devalue the Pak Rupee and result in increased inflation in the economy.

    • Ya Allah .. Hum pakistanio ko khoon choosnay wallay MAchar “Isaak dollar” say chutkara Dilla day

      • dost bewa ki tarah ba dua dena sa behatar ha jab vote aao tu soch samjh ka vote dena …..

        • NS vote se nai rigging se aya hai. Fair election Pakistan mein kabhie nai hosakhte. Ye awaam ache leader ke liaq be nai hai. Jaise awaam waise hukmaran. Ab vote vote kar ke apni stupidity nai show karo, kuch nai hota vote se Pakistan mein. Jo army aur agencies chahte hai sirf wahe hota hai.

  • Actually! our govt wants something change and they can only in currency sometime they change colors sometime size.. LOL.

  • Please think… This 10 rupees is actually 10 pesa .. And 5 rupees are 5 pesas… And you will feel our 1 rupee is equal to one dollar

  • I still remember when i get 1 or 2rs copy on Eid that was such a lovely moment but now this cheap Coins light weight which lost very easily

    • وہ زمانہ چلا گیا جب خلیل میاں فاختہ اڑایا کرتے تھے۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔ اب یہ نورے اور زورداری کا دور ہے

  • LOLZ, @ “Attendants included Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and Minister for Petroleum Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.”

  • Benazir has no place on a coin in Pakistan. She is by far and away not one of the founders of the country, on the contrary infact, her family are culprits of breaking my country into two in the first place. To top it all off, has any one seen the state of the province of Sindh, the province she belonged to. Be it urban or rural the place reeks. Before judging my comment I need to clarify the fact that I am from Sindh, and I feel betrayed by this woman, her family, her party and so should every person living in Sindh or the rest of Pakistan. People who plan to be critical of my comments, I invite you to think for a second, what has she, her government, her family, her political party, her ideology, given you other than the Sain image. Its pathetic

    • +1 you seem like an intelligent person, which is rare in Pakistani awaam. F$CK BB and her supporters.

    • the bhutto clan are famous through their PR machine (the PPP) who use up the entire national reserve promoting PPP and bhutto as champions of democracy through frivoulous charity programs but no one ever asks how did they make their money or how they own an entire village where illitrate people go to their massive and lavish mazaar and worship them like saints? or how they own palaces in dubai. How can people vote for someone who has never even known their plight for even a single day? these people are the furthest removed from a typical voting pakistani citizen.

  • We should better name them paisas instead of rupees to give them a better understanding in values and also to ease the use of calculators in reduced fatigues of whole-numbers.

  • give me one thing extraordinary that BB G did during her tenure.. JUST ONE GUYS ….

    Edhi pic would have made more sense imo .. that guy did what gov should be doing in the first place.

  • Pinky on the coin? This is outrageous, stupid. Are they out of their mind? Who is it in treasury from PPP?

    This is nonsense wow can’t believe what I am seeing.

  • Is se bari Laanat kya hogi k Daaku Lutero ki tasveerein ab currency pe chhapay gee :( :( such a shame. Khair baki kon se achay kaam ho rahay hain yahan, Panama Leaks ki waja se ab PPP ko kisi tarah to khush krna hee hai … #GoNawazGo

    • but that 10 rupee coin definitely represents what bhutto did for the people of Pakistan: pushed us into a greater depth of poverty and misery! every beggar in Pakistan will have a memorial token of that reality!

  • Make 10 rupee coin of Liaquat ali khan, rehmat ali khan, even make a coin of EDHI.

    If i get this coin, I will ask, give change in 2 rupee coin.

  • as we know, nawaz sharif term is near its completion, Nawaz shareef is playing a game so Bilawal bhutto will remember what he did do for his mother.

  • Since we tried other materials, they should make it with plastic. It will be good experiment with our tax money.

  • Don’t Liked it….. Mr.10 percent key biwi ko 10 Rs kay coin per jaga di hai….. Kia kamal key souch hai SOP key…… aise Ghatiya aurat aur chor family ko kahi jaga nahi deyni chaeiya……. GO BHUTTO GO.

  • We have all heard that experience is the best teacher. Unfortunately this maxim is used to justify making mistakes due to insufficient preparation, hasty action, lack of thought, or carelessness. Although we all should learn from our experiences, both good and bad, there’s no good reason to keep reinventing the wheel. Rather than learning from your own experiences, it is far more efficient to learn from someone else’s.

  • Choose a leader who will invest in building bridges, not walls. Books, not weapons. Morality, not corruption. Intellectualism and wisdom, not ignorance. Stability, not fear and terror. Peace, not chaos. Love, not hate. Convergence, not segregation. Tolerance, not discrimination. Fairness, not hypocrisy. Substance, not superficiality. Character, not immaturity. Transparency, not secrecy. Justice, not lawlessness. Environmental improvement and preservation, not destruction. Truth, not lies_______________________________________A great leader must serve the best interests of the people first, not those of multinational corporations. Human life should never be sacrificed for monetary profit. There are no exceptions. In addition, a leader should always be open to criticism, not silencing dissent. Any leader who does not tolerate criticism from the public is afraid of their dirty hands being revealed under heavy light. And such a leader is dangerous, because they only feel secure in the darkness. Only a leader who is free from corruption welcomes scrutiny; for scrutiny allows a good leader to be an even greater leader.

  • this can only mean that 10 rupees no longer buys anything!
    this is how the government discontinued the ‘paisa’ coins (though they never exempted the citizens of pakistan from it’s use….a very despicable move) and now use it behind the scenes to skim extra money off the unsuspecting citizens. Soon we will have a 100 rupee coin because the government got greedier and wanted to milk more money off the citizens.

  • Yeh jitnay bhi choootiye abhi kuttoon ki tarah bagair article perhe aur bagair sochay samjhay bhoonnk rahay hain ki iski tasveer kyuin di uski kyuin di. Woh zara oper article main perh lain k woh tasweer wala sika 2008 main special edition k tor pe issue huwa tha aur sirf 3 lakh quantity issue hoi thi. Abhi jo 10 ka sikka hai us pe kisi ki tasweer nahi hai.
    Is liye kaam ki baat ki jaye tou behter hai. Aur kuch loog yahan Angreezi ki 2 chaar linain likh k khod ko George Washington ki oulaad samjh rahe hain. Unke liye arz hai k bhai dou chaar jumlaybaazi karne se Rasheed Phajaywala ka beta Richard Olson nahi ban jata theek usi tarah jis tarah gadha kitabien uthany se Aalim nahi ban jata.
