October 05, 2022

To celebrate the diamond jubilee of the country on its 75th independence year the State Bank of Pakistan has made available the commemorative PKR 75 note on all its SBP BSC offices and the commercial banks of the country from the 30th of September.

The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) unveiled the design of the commemorative banknote on August 14, 2022, in a ceremony.

The design and colour of the banknote has been inspired by the colours of the flag of the country. There are green and white colours in the note with mixtures of yellow here and there. The green colour symbolizes the Islamic identity of the country with its aims of equitable growth and social justice. The white part of the banknote indicates the religious and ethnic diversity of the country.

Portraits of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, Allama Muhammad Iqbal, and Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah on the note’s front side are its distinct features.

Pakistan’s national animal Markhor and Deodar tree are printed on the backside of the note. They represent Pakistan’s commitment to addressing the challenges of climate change in accordance with international agreements of the United Nations.

Pakistan through its banknotes wants to send a message throughout the world that it is high time that we start taking climate change seriously. Pakistan has borne the brunt of a deteriorating climate more than any other country in the world. Pakistan stands up for inclusive progress without burdening any other country or people with the consequences of its actions. It also wants the world to reciprocate.

“This banknote is legal tender under section 25 of the SBP Act, 1956, and can be used as medium of exchange for all transactions across Pakistan,” an SBP press release. 

This is the second of the commemorative notes issued by the State Bank of Pakistan. The first of these was issued by the State Bank in 1997 on the occasion of 50 years of Pakistan’s independence marking Pakistan’s 50 years as an independent country.
