The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has announced the issuance of a Rs50 Commemorative Coin to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the promulgation of the Constitution of Pakistan. The Constitution was passed by the National Assembly on April 10, 1973, and serves as the supreme law of Pakistan, intended to guide the country’s law, political culture, and system, according to the SBP. In a statement released on Thursday, the SBP explained that the Constitution outlines the state’s framework and enshrines and protects the fundamental rights of the population, ensuring the security of every citizen of Pakistan. To mark this significant occasion, the Federal Government has authorised the central bank to issue a commemorative coin of Rs50. The commemorative coin will be available for purchase at all field offices of SBP Banking Services Corporation exchange counters from April 14, according to the statement. The coin will have a round shape and is made of two metals, 75% copper and 25% nickel. It will weigh 13.5 grams and have a diameter of 30mm. The coin’s obverse side will feature a waxing crescent moon and a five-pointed star facing the northwest in a rising position. Above the star, an inscription, “Islami Jamhooriya Pakistan” in Urdu script, will be present, while two sprigs of wheat with their ends turned upwards and the year of issue, 2023, will be at the coin’s bottom. The face value of the coin, “50,” and the word “rupiya” in Urdu script will also be inscribed on the coin. On the coin’s reverse side, there will be a picture of the book titled “The Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan” in the center, with the words “golden jubilee of constitution of Pakistan” in Urdu script written on the periphery. The 50-year period will be mentioned below the book, while “50” and “years” will be written in Urdu on the right and left sides, respectively.
