1981 Malaysia Proof Coin Commemorative 4th Malaysia Plan

As describe in an earlier article, to-date, Malaysia has issued only six times, gold coins whether singly or in a proof set of 3  bearing a legal tender of 500 ringgits. Below is one of them which is the 1981 Malaysia Proof set of 3 :-

A bit more details:

  • These 1981 coins are the 2nd time ( first was 1980) where the Malaysian government allowed Franklin Mint of United States to mint on its behalf;
  • The coins are to commemorate the 4 th Malaysia Plan hence bearing  the potrait of Tun Hussein Onn.
  • The various denomination of proof coin in case in this 1981 family are:
  • 1 Ringgit Cupro-nickel proof  – 10,000 pieces
  • 20 Ringgits Silver 0.500 fine – 5,000 pieces
  • 500 Ringgit Gold 0.900 fine – 1,000 pieces (10.26gm)
  • Set of 3 re: 1 Ringgit,20 Ringgits & 500 Ringgits – 3,000 cases or pieces

There are many gold coins of various denomination re : 100 ringgit, 200 ringgits , 250 ringgits and 500 ringgits and even some are heavier. So what is the relevancy here?

Well, suppose there is a real bad war happening- first thing first, a person who wants to do barter trade will always look for a bigger legal tender valued  gold coins than a smaller one . So as a gold coin collector or investor, do not neglect these higher legal tender gold coins.
