As far as we can tell, these coins are sleepers. Sleeper is coin collector slang for coins that are worth more than what people think they are worth. The catalogs indicate very low value. But, when you try to find one to add to your collection, you have a tough time and ultimately pay a lot more than the catalogs suggest.
The Pakistan 1/2 and 2 anna coins are both square and both have the same patterns, front and back. The obvious difference is in the annotation: HALF ANNA or TWO ANNAS in Latin letters. There are similar coins for later years. This page applies only to coins with the pattern shown.
HALF ANNA AND TWO ANNAS:
