This is the second coin in Republic series. The first one was 2 Rupees coin. These coins do not have the name of the King and represent the country after the Shah Dynasty was deposed.

This coin confirms that the Obverse design is now standard with Mount Everst and "Sagarmatha" (name of Everest in Nepali) as the inscription.
