The Pakistani Rupee is the official currency of the country. The rupee became the official currency of Pakistan after the dissolution of the British Raj in 1947. When the currency was first introduced, the country used British Indian coins and banknotes that simply had “Pakistan” stamped on them. New coins and banknotes were introduced the following year. The Pakistani Rupee eventually became decimalized in the early 1960s, and could be subdivided into 100 smaller units of currency called pice. Pakistan has not, however, issued coins denominated in pice since 1994.
The central bank of Pakistan, known as the State Bank of Pakistan, issues and controls the nation’s currency. The central bank is headquartered in the Pakistani financial capital city of Karachi, and has numerous branch office locations throughout the country. The State Bank of Pakistan was nationalized in 1974, and at that time saw a significant increase in its mandated responsibilities.
