Books Authored by him,
1.) ‘The Revised Standard Reference Guide to Indian Paper Money’ – 2012.
2.) ‘One Rupee – One Hundred Years 1917-2017’ – 2017.
The most remarkable facet of Rezwan Razack’s personality is his passion for collecting Indian Banknotes and Paper Money. His collection of Indian Paper Money is the most comprehensive in the world today.
This hobby, fuelled by Rezwan’s relentless passion and zest for knowledge has created the most accomplished collection of Indian Paper Money from its inception to the present. His collection has been built over a period of 50 years, which saw in-depth research and study of this subject. This culminated in ‘The Revised Standard Reference Guide to Indian Paper Money’, a book that Rezwan co-authored and released in January 2012. This guide has become the single most reliable point of reference on Indian Paper Money. In 2017, Rezwan authored a second book ‘One Rupee – One Hundred Years 1917-2017’ to mark the 100th Anniversary of the issue of the One Rupee note in India.
Rezwan’s long cherished dream – ‘Rezwan Razack’s Museum on Indian Paper Money’ dedicated to Indian Paper Money is a reality and is now open in Bangalore. In the true sense, Rezwan is the restorer and preserver of a national heritage, which could otherwise have been easily lost. His name is parallel to Indian numismatics and will always resonate at a mere mention of Indian Paper Money anywhere and forever.
