This is in bottle green colour and illustrates, at center, the Constituent Assembly Building, Karachi. On side panels Jute plant appears at right and Wheat at left. The caption and date is printed at top and bold 'REPUBLIC DAY' below the building. Denomination 2-anna is shown on sides in English at left and in Urdu at right.
