Pakistan 25 and 50 Paisa 1967 to 1974
A tughra and the crescent and star with the words Government of Pakistan (in Bengali and in Urdu Tughra) are common to the denominations 25 and 50 paisa from Pakistan. On the reverse is value written in Bengali and Urdu. Jasminum officinale (common jasmine or poet's jasmine) branch in center. All in all, this is a very pleasing design and one that would make a nice addition to any collection.
These coin are made of copper-nickel, and modern coins made of non-precious metal carry very low value. They are worth face value in Pakistan, less than $1 US dollar elsewhere, and, if you can find one in fully uncirculated conditions, collectors may be willing to pay $1 or $2 US dollars for it.
