Collecting Coins of Pakistan

Time was changing when I opened my eyes to this world; everything seemed to be going ‘online’. But still it was not that bad – we still were living our offline lives too. It was time when stamp collection, reading books in their ‘hard copy format’, gaming (offline) with hands and feet involved, making scrap books, collecting dolls, coin collection were few of the more common hobbies instead of chatting, surfing online and downloading music.

I inherited not the coin collection hobby but the coins themselves from my sis (and probably my parents too since she cannot collect coins issued years before her).

I remember years back when someone would come from any foreign land me and my siblings’ would surely ask for some coin tokens to add up in our collection. And it used to be great time of pleasure for me to open up my sis’ stamp and coin collections whenever she was away, as a feast.

To date, State Bank of Pakistan has issued numerous (and many uncountable too) coins of different denominations; from Takka to Paisa, 5 paisa’s to 50 paisas’s and then quarter rupee to 5 rupee coin. Since, I’ve a 100 Rupee coin too; so I guess, as commemoration, larger denominations in fewer amounts were issued too. Interestingly, whether 25 paisas or 50 paisas, the term Paisa was more popular, but I came across a 10 Pice too issued in 1961. I guess people were more comfortable with paisa than pice! Quarter rupee or ‘aadh pao’ was an interesting term too :)

English, Urdu, Bangla and Arabic are some of the main languages inscribed on these coins from time to time. With language, size and shapes also saw no restrictions but the rounder coins remained the most popular with issuing authorities. In the 1970′s and 1980′s the one rupee coin was of much better size than today’s 5 rupee coin and the value matters too (Ouch at Rupee devaluation).

Coins were used as phone tokens too back in time till early 80′s – now the calling cards rocks. While I was looking for coins online, I found an interesting site showing off real ancient coins such as this billon, issued in 1200′s by a Sindh ruler, with a horse embarked on it and even a coin from Akbar’s time too.

The oldest coin, I have, is from early times of Pakistan i.e., 1948. Other notable coins are the ones issued to commemorate 100th birth celebrations of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah in 1976 and Allam Iqbal in 1977, Islamic Summit conference 74, Beginning of Al-Hijrah in 1401 and even one coin with the slogan that “Pedawar Barhao” jo aaj tak na barhii!

For some reasons, amongst most Pakistanis, metallic and plastic money is still not popular; it’s more of a burden than ease.

I wonder if, over time, our coins would come cherished as collectable items some time. After all, in countries like USA, UK, Canada, rare coins, stamps and even game tickets are sold for hundreds of dollars, and more!

    Asma, nice collection of coins. I particularly like the 4-cornered coin. It’s so unusual.

    Thank you for a very nice site and this nice essay on coins. I used to collecct coins when I was young and still have a lot of my collection. I remember when the special coins on Quaid i Azam and Iqbal and Summit came. I used to try to have as many as I could… I wonder if there ever became a market for collectors. But then I used to be more interested in coins of other ccountries and actually did not pay as much attention to Pakssiatni coins as I should have. I wish I had.

    Asma, hold on to whatever coins you have. Pretty soon I think Pakistan will have no more coins, only notes. The way devaluation of ruppee is going.

  6. January 15th, 2007 3:33 pm

    Speaking of money, I am disturbed at the new currency notes issued in Pakistan. More than once I have heard people mistake 5000 ruppee note for a 20 ruppee note.

  7. MU says:
    January 15th, 2007 4:05 pm

    Public accounts committee has asked state bank to correct this. Funny all the wizards at SB could not figure this.

    [quote ]“More than once I have heard people mistake 5000 ruppee note for a 20 ruppee note.”[/quote]

    That’s true. One of the two problems I have found my self grappling with on returning to Pakistan recently is counting money when paying for my purchases. The new currency notes have the same or similar color and almost the same size. In the US one is used to look at the value figure in the four corners of a note. Here in Pakistan people normally look at the color and size of the note. The problem is made worse because the old notes are still in circulation.

    The other problem, in case you are curious, is not relevant to this post and also not new to Pakistan. It is crossing a street! I am not talking of jaywalking but of crossing small streets at “zebra crossings”. More on this some other time, possibly in a post.

    Hi i think that this is a best hobby. And so useful. The problem with Pakistani people is that they are facing a great problem of 5000 and 20 rupees note.That is true so many people use 5000 note as 20 rupees note because the same color and size of both.Thats why so many people are having a great problem….

  16. Madiha says:

    Great post. I wonder if you have seen any ‘annas’. Remeber previously we had rupees, annas and paisas. There were sixteen annas and a hundred paisas in a rupee. Highly confusing! Like pound, shillings and pence.

    Hi Asma! Nice Collection. I am also a Coin collector. So far the State Bank has issued 65 different coins and Masha ALLAH i am having all of them. I am also having coins from East India Company the 1800 – 1947 and will soon share the images with you.

    January 14th, 2008 8:44 pm

    Hi Jackie,

    unless the coins you have are in mint condition they are not worth very much–a few cents maybe. A current coin catalogue in the library can give you the “book value” of whatever grade of coin you may have. Coins sell for around 2/3 the book value usually. A coin dealer or shop can also tell you.

    For those living in Pakistan who want to collect coins as an investment, old silver Afghanis and coins from the pre-independence princely states (ex: Bahawalpur, Hyderabad) can be found at nominal cost, yet are increasing in value and are sought after in the West. Special issue or commemorative Pakistani coins in silver will also not lose their value.

    Of course collecting old rupees for fun/sentimental reasons can be good too.

    Interesting post. I’ve also many coins from different countries and different eras. The oldest coin I kept is of 17th century that contains the queen Victoria image.
    The coin issued by state bank of Pakistan, I like best, was issued after Islamic Summit conducted at Lahore.
    We’ve also fun with coins. Many times challenges were conducted on the basis of coins as in Nilam Ghar, later Tariq Aziz Show. Someone challenge do some one keep one paisa ” two paisa “do paisa”, five paisa “panch paisa” and like this.

  39. March 28th, 2008 1:36 pm

    asma mirza you have done a great job by giving initial information on pakistani coins. suggest you keep this up.

  40. March 28th, 2008 1:52 pm

    dear enthusiasts of pakistani coins:

    it is of interest to note that we have five coins of silver with face value of rupees one hundred each issued during 1976-1977 on various occaissions. luckily i have them and cherish them. in addition there are four gold coins for the corresponding silver. the worst part of it is that the total gold coins all four ever minted are only 2,302. will endevor to put up atleast the silver coins on the web.

  41. Raja says:
    March 28th, 2008 4:44 pm

    well you got a nice collection though!
    but,what i wanted to tell you guys,there are so many ancient coins of different extinct civilizations among which are only retained to now in pakistan are also availaable.
    availability of many ancient coins are scarce but they can only be found in pakistan….
    Guyz you should try to enhance your collection by adding such coins which purely now belong to Pakistan.

  42. March 30th, 2008 4:40 pm

    Raja saheb i fully endose your suggestion which has its value. when i started considering the coins it has been difficult even to get the Pakistani coins in good conditions. so that was where i started with time.

    similarly, even the bank notes of Pakistan has its beauty since the earlier 4-5 notes are Kind George with over print “Government of Pakistan”. there on the various changes are also of high interest.

    any body interested in foreign currency notes or coins against Pakistani!

    good luck

    I have the coin of 25 Paisas one face of which is shown in the first photo of your page, second coin with arabic writings. But I do not know the year of mint, as it is marked in arabic numbers 1401 or maybe 1301 and the value of 25 in arabic as well. Should I add 580 years to 1401 and get 1981 or 621 years to 1301 and get 1922? I saw pictures or simmilar coins but the numbers where european and the years 70′s 80′s. I could e-mail the picture of the coin, were you willing to take a look.

    Are there any laws in Pakistan to forbid the use of a metal detector? Can a person use one to find buried coins in the ground?


  57. Peter says:
    August 19th, 2008 5:08 pm

    Danni, you should NEVER clean your old coins. The value will be less if you do. The natural tarnish that turns coins dark will help protect them. Also, cleaning coins causes some damage. Serious coin collectors do not want to buy coins that have been cleaned.

    hello guys ,
    simple answers to some blogs
    first cleanig patina so called dirt or rust of a coin, better boil coins mix with any detergent or soap in water for some time,then don’t rub it with anything hard stuff, you’ll get a better shape of coins,
    second i should tell you to beware of buying ancient coins cause lot more replica and miniature coins exists in south asia,specially made in neighboring countries of pakistan,
    and the coin with hijri date and sometimes KALIMA and mosque with caliphate names on each corner is a type of nazrana found in base metal commonly but in silver as well it has a worth in coins,

  68. Raja says:
    November 12th, 2008 10:59 am

    the most likely AR square coin obverse must ve been kings name mostly akbar issued square coins reverse KALIMA with calipaha’s name is nazrana as well.

    Pakistani coins does have collectors demand all over the world
    in recent world numismatic auction 1974/75 coin was sold around 45 usd
    highest price in coins amongest all our neighboring countries, pakistan struck first coin in 1948,though,
    so many people use a term george v banknotes as overprinted by the government of pakistan…..without any consentment of british rulers who were there?
    i like pakistani silver coins once were struck on different occasions , in rupees though,if anyone has any info, i would simply admire it.

    Hi from America. Shukria, this was interesting. I was just surfing around, curious about South Asian coins, due to my interest in both your country and India. I must say that, while my Devanagari reading skills are stronger than my Nastaliq, I find the latter so much more beautiful and elegant; particularly on coins.

    I am trying to get Pakistani coin from each date and denomination from 1947 to date, including pattern coins.

    I have started to display Pakistani coins, sorted according to Presidential rule and related Princely states coinage existing in Pakistan before independence, at my website:

    It is still under construction, hopefully it will be completed within 3 months.

    Take Care.

    It is fortunate that some dealers have started obtainting and offering Pakistani used coins and same are available in Raja Bazaar of Pindi and Super N Jinnah Super markets of Islamabad.

    Pakistani coins of which so far there are 300 examples ( includes 4 Gold and 5 silver), but around 65 representative examples is oon going to be extinct examples the few examples with the dedicated pakistanse who love their heritage.

    It is a tragedy and almost a crime that smelters of Gujranwalla are working overtime to obtain all the remaing of our precious heritage and turning the same into copper wires.

    There should be a law to protect and save one of the most undesttructable evidence of our heritage ( of which there are a few sadly). A dedicated campaign should be launched in this respect and State Bank of Pakistan should also intervene in this matter in the form of issuing instruction not to mutilate or change the shape of the remaing cois with the public.

    Salaam everyone,

    My name is Waqi and i’m from London. I collect coins from all around the world, but i’m more keen collecting British Indian, Indian, and Pakistani coins.

    Due to the reason i live in London its hard to get Pakistani coins here, eventhough i have visited many exhibitions in London as well as many other coin shops.
    Right now i have more then 30,000 coins, majority of them are British Coins.

    I hardly been to pakistan, but i love to know someone who have the same interest and willing to swap.
    I don’t mind buying coins, specially “commemorative coins”. I can’t locate any website about Pakistani coin community or Pakistani coin forum, neither i could locate Pakistan Numismatic Society.

    I’ll be more happy to know anyone who is keen to share the same interest.

    Many thanks for reading my saying.
    Waqi Ahmed

    Or if there is i can do for anybody regarding the same interest, i’ll be more then happy to assist you in any way.

    I have read post about a coin with 4 Khulfae Rashideen on one side and Mosque on the othe side with Madinah Sharif written there off, and from time to time same piece is reffered to me for attribution.

    I want to clarify that it is not a COIN, but a MEMEMTO of Hajj and Madinah Munawarah , which the Hajis used to bring from Madinah Munawarah during Pre-partition days.
    One can still pick up these mementos from footpath dealers of Bolton market of Karachi or equally from old coin dealers of Lahore Etc.

    Hi to all collectors!

    If you ever had a problem of dating your coins, it’s not a problem anymore! My web application called “Creounity. Time Machine” ( covers as yet 17 (gonna be 21 very soon) chronological systems, including Lunar Hejira (, Solar Hejira (Afghanistan (, Iran (, Hebrew, Ethiopian, Thai, old Mongolian, Russian numerical notation used in the beginning of the 18-th century, Japan, Georgia and many others.

    Converters do work both directly (from one of the systems to the Gregorian calendar) and vice versa. Every converter is followed by the description telling how it works.

    If you have any questions or suggestions how I can improve the “Time Machine”, please email me at
