State Bank Officially Unveils Rs. 75 Commemorative Note

Pakistan is celebrating its 75th independence day and the State Bank of Pakistan has unveiled the Rs. 75 commemorative banknote to honor the country’s diamond jubilee.

The central bank unveiled the special note earlier today on Twitter, saying “The note will be available for public issuance from 30th September 2022.”

Fittingly, the emerald green currency note comes with portraits of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, Allama Muhammad Iqbal, and Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah. The portraits signify the struggle of Pakistan’s founding members for the country’s independence.

Similarly, the vignette on the back, designed by artist, Sara Khan, shows the national animal Markhor and the national tree Deodar, reflecting the importance of preserving our environment and Pakistan’s unique flora and fauna.

Here’s the special banknote:

The banknote was approved by the federal government in accordance with the SBP Act 1956 following the recommendations of the SBP Board.

The color scheme, portraits, vignettes along with public service message were conceived by the internal banknote committee at the State Bank of Pakistan and integrated into a final banknote design by the banknote designers at De La Rue, United Kingdom.

The note also comes with a plethora of security features including raised printing that can be felt by running fingers across the portraits, a watermark of Quaid-e-Azam’s portrait and 75 numeral, Pureimage security thread with pulsing holographic rainbow effect, micro-lettering of 75 numeral among others.

Here are all the security features of the commemorative note:

  • Excellent design, glad to see the note. Anxiously waiting to buy it, well done SBP.

  • New approach towards corruption and fraud. O bhai kaam krney walla kro na k drameybazi kro. Is waqt Pakistan may 5000 ka corruption aur black money ka sab say bara source hy isey khatam kro

  • What’s the logic of public issuance from Sept 30th? Should have been 14th August or earlier.
    Incompetence by SBP!

  • It would be nice to have a photo of Shaheed e Millat Liaquat Ali Khan as well on the note.
