A little of details of these coins:

  • In 1975-1976 the Royal Mint UK together with the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) and IUCNNR (World Wildlife Fund, and the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources) issued a 12 pieces collection of silver proof coins, two each from from six different countries (Malaysia, Mongolia, Pakistan, Sudan, Venezuela & Zaire).
  • In 1974-1976, 24 countries mint 1 gold and 2 silver coins (In total 24 gold coins & 48 silver coins) for Wildlife conservation series with each coin featuring an endangered species from that country.
    The countries that issued these conservation coins comprises Afghanistan, Botswana, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Fiji, Falkland Islands, Gambia, Indonesia, Jordan, Malawi, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mongolia, Nepal, Oman, Pakistan, Seychelles, Sudan, Tanzania, Thailand, Venezuela, Zaire and Zambia.

Some of major reasons for its popularity includes the following:

  1. As these 1976 Conservation coins are formed part of a link to such international scene hence this is one of the major reason for collectors worldwide to make a complete set of 24 pieces of gold coins and 48 pieces of silver coins set.
  2. Another reason of course is that the Cipan or Tapir gold is the HEAVIEST MALAYSIA GOLD COIN minted re: Gross weight 33.45gm , 0.9 fine. Next is the 2000 Millennium non proof gold coin: Gross weight 25 gm,0.999 gm and the third is the 1971 Tuanku Abdul Rahman proof gold coin:18.66 gm, 0.917 fine and
  3. Lastly perhaps this coin is of more than 30 years old and also enhanced with its limited mintage.
