This is the second commemorative banknote issued by the central bank after the issuance of the first commemorative note issued to mark the 50 years of independence of the country in 1997. However, the themes and concepts for both the obverse and reverse sides of the banknote were developed by the SBP and local artists. The commemorative banknote has been designed to pay tribute to the leaders who contributed to the creation of Pakistan and create awareness about climate change and its impact on our environment. As a result, the Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Allama Sir Muhammad Iqbal, Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah, and Sir Syed Ahmed Khan are depicted on the banknote’s obverse. In light of the unprecedented loss brought on by the recent torrential rains and flooding in many areas of Pakistan, the reverse of the banknote emphasizes our country’s commitment to addressing climate change and its effects on Pakistan. The images of the national animal Markhor and the national tree Deodar on the reverse also highlight the danger of extinction of such species and the need to preserve them.
