According to the press release issued by the SBP, the design of this commemorative banknote was unveiled on August 14, 2022, during a ceremony at SBP headquarters in Karachi. This is the second commemorative banknote issued by the central bank after the issuance of first commemorative note issued to mark the 50 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 the SBP and local artists.
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. 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.
