3rd century BC silver coins from Uari-Bateshwar in Narsingdi near Dhaka. There are fish, boat, elephant and bird prints on the coin.

After a thousand years in 1971 when Bangladesh became independent, the coin was designed by artist KG Mustafa. He chose Bangabandhu's image as the symbol, first on the taka and later on the 1, 5, 10, 25 and 50 paisa coins, and all the things that represent Bangladesh, such as rice, rivers, boats, jute, shapla, villages and people of Bangladesh.

Colleague Manoj Dey pulls out coins from his pen while writing this report. On one side of the coin is the national symbol of Bangladesh Shapla, Shapla is surrounded by grains of rice, jute and four stars. Yamuna multi-purpose bridge on the opposite side. The symbols used in this currency indicate that this country is riverine. The country is agricultural, jute being our main industry. Our basic principles are four (Nationalism, Secularism, Socialism and Democracy). On the other hand, the bridge is a symbol of development and progress.

Coin researchers say there is no substitute for deciphering coins to get an idea of ​​a country. The coins preserved in the National Museum need to be deciphered. Because, from this, the history of Bengal, the evolution of society and economy of this country, the picture of commercial communication with other towns or countries will be clear.
