New 5 Rupees Note

July 26, 2008

I got this new bank note yesterday. First of all many people would be relieved that 5 rupees note is back. Secondly, it’s small in size like 10 and 20 rupees note AND… when I saw it the first time, it felt like a note from the monopoly game; maybe due to the dark blue color at the back. This note carries the picture of Gwadar port. The dark blue color is of the water actually. The quality doesn’t seem very good and I am sure by the time market is flooded with those notes they would already be worn out like 10 and 20 rupees notes.


The State Bank of Pakistan has also issued new 50 rupees note but I have yet to see it.

    Hmm…the new currency is very inspired by the UAE dirham!

    Now the makers of fake currency notes will be mulling over how to make a counterfeit of this note, as there are lots of the fake notes of the newer generation currency in circulation. Personally I liked the older, a bit larger currency notes which both proverbial or literally were comparatively weighty.
    Waisay currency in any form is good as long as it keeps comin … 🙂

    Thanks Nadeen, I wanted to show the coin as well. That’ll remain in circulation for a long time I am sure.

    Well, I have no problem regarding size but for some reason I feel they worn out soon. May be the paper quality isn’t very good.

    Another step by our glorious State Bank of Pakistan to turn this nation into Zimbabwe….God save us from that day, where we will have carry to suitcase full of cash, just to get a cup of chai for its worth…

    Yes, Like they would do in Afghanistan before US invation. I am not sure what’s the situation now. They had to carry a bag full of their currency to buy everyday items.

    Well, her sign to me looks the same as “Ishrat Husain” 😛

    mmm interesting about signs.

    Personally I believe that these signs are just symbolic and there are more hidden/disguised patterns to be counterfeited. Not hidden in that sense because obscurity is no more security but bit more complicated and unknown patterns.

    Having said that signatures seems to be just a tribute for the Governor State Bank then I find it only jeopardizing her personal accounts and official authentication of documents.
