Furthermore, the design of the commemorative Rs. 75 banknote was unveiled on Independence Day (14 August 2022), during a ceremony a the SBP Headquarters in Karachi.
It is pertinent to mention that it is the second commemorative banknote to be issued by the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) after the issuance of the first commemorative note to mark fifty years of independence of the country in 1997.
The themes and concepts for both the obverse and reverse sides of the banknote were developed by SBP and local artists.
The commemorative Rs. 75 banknote has been designed to pay tribute to the leaders contributing towards creation of Pakistan and create awareness about climate change and its impact on our environment.
Accordingly, the obverse of the banknote is graced with the portraits of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Allama Sir Muhammad Iqbal, Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah and Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, while the reverse of the banknote highlights our national commitment towards climate change and its repercussions for Pakistan, which has gained added urgency in the light of unprecedented loss caused by the recent torrential rains and flooding in large parts of Pakistan.
The images of national animal Markhor and national tree Deodar on the reverse also highlight the danger of extinction of such species and the need to preserve them.
