Most coins of independent Pakistan are easy to collect in nice to excellent grade. Even the commemoratives are not too difficult to find. Bronzes often suffer from finger printing, though.

Issues from 1948 to 1960 are denominated in the British Indian system 64 pice = 16 annas = 1 rupee. One anomaly is the crescent opening to the right on some coins. Another is the denomination of 1 pie (⅓ pice). From 1964, there were no longer legends in latin letters.

Inflation has taken a heavy toll on Pakistani coins.
