Pakistan 1, 5, and 10 Pice  1953 to 1961
Pakistan 1, 5, and 10 Pice 1953 to 1961

These base metal coins from Pakistan all have the same obverse design, although they are not all the same shape. The obverse shows a crescent and star above the tughra (official calligraphy seal), and the reverse shows the denomination.

The 1 pice coin in this article was minted from 1953 to 1959 with a nickel-brass composition, and again in a bronze composition in 1961.

The 5 pice coin is four-sided and was minted in 1961. It is made of nickel-brass.

The 10 pice coin is scalloped and was also minted in 1961. It is made of copper-nickel.

None of these coins are valuable -- a collector might pay a couple dollars for one in fully uncirculated condition, but they are all worth less than one U.S. dollar in circulated condition.
