State Bank to issue ten rupees coin in FY 2015-16

Last Updated On 24 November,2015

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) on Tuesday has stated that ten rupees coin would be introduced in the ongoing Fiscal Year 2015-16.

The supreme bank authorities told Senate’s standing committee for Finance that five rupees coin’s production cost has lessened by Rs 3.75 due to reduction in metals prices in international market. On the other hand, the State Bank is using machines as old as “World War II.”

Pakistan’s bank is equipped with technology that can only produce 80 coins per minute whereas machines that produce 800 coins per minute are used in other countries.

The State Bank authorities told the standing committee that ten rupees coin has been given a go-ahead.

The SBP in October had issued revised 5-rupee coin. The central bank stated that the fresh coin was 3 grams in weight and made of 79% copper, 20% zinc and 1% nickel.

The obverse of the issued coin shows (like all other denominations) a crescent and a star.

Government to introduce Rs10 coin in a couple of weeks: State Bank

Published: October 3, 2016

KARACHI: The federal government is expected to introduce the Rs10 coin in a couple of weeks, a State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) spokesperson said on Monday.

The SBP started receiving Rs10 coins from Pakistan Mint — the nation’s oldest mint located in Lahore’s Shalimar Town from Monday, the SBP spokesperson told The Express Tribune. However, he said, it may take another two weeks before the new coins started circulating as the central bank needed time to supply them to its 16 offices nationwide.

“We will announce a date on which the new coins will be available but it may take two weeks,” the spokesperson revealed. Pakistan Mint, a public sector institution mints coins and medals for the armed forces and the government. The currency note printing facilities of the government are located in Karachi.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had green-lighted the introduction of the Rs10 coin and a revised Rs5 coin earlier in August during a cabinet meeting in Islamabad. Decisions on important development programmes, introduction of Rs10 coin, revision of Rs5 coin, Tax Law Amendment Ordinance 2016 and determination of sales tax on petroleum products had featured prominently on the meeting’s agenda.

Alloy and other aspects are more like of Iran, other side neighbour of Pakistan.
Nickel bronze coins were started by Pakistan only in October 2015.
Iran has been making them for years and their minting is superb.

Pakistan has been making high value circulating commemorative coins of Copper Nickel so far.
Next due is 50 Rupees on Abdus Sattar Edhi. Let us see if it is Copper Nickel or Nickel Bronze.
