Legal tender money is two kinds.Unlimited legal tender:Unlimited tender money is one in terms of which debt can be legally paid up to any amount. In Pakistan, for instance notes of state bank of Pakistan valuing Rs. 100.00, Rs. 5.00 and Rs. 1.00 are full legal tender money.

Limited legal money:Limited legal tender money is that which a creditor can accept in settlement of claims up to certain limit only. In Pakistan coins of small denomination valuing upon paisa 50 are limited legal tender money. The creditor can refuse to accept the payment of obligations legally if the coins are of paisa fifty or less than fifty.
