New Malaysia Numismatic Book “Catalogue of Malaysia Banknotes & Coins 1967 to 2014

Recently, there were  a big hu ha when a ” new” catalogue/book , “Catalogue of Malaysia Banknotes & Coins” came into the numismatic market. Why is this so?

Catalogue of Malaysia Banknotes and coins 1967-2014

To understand such outcry , perhaps we should look at the pros and cons about this catalogue:

Good points of this book:

(i)  a reasonably thin book of #150 pages which is easy to carry around for the both Malaysian banknotes & coin collectors to hunt for their items;

(ii) have boxes in each item for the collector to tick against;

(iii) have the  latest prefix of the banknotes and some more information on new items like the bird folder,etc

(iv) have a lot of information on locations of coin dealers ( except for slcollectors shop who happens to forget to advertise on it)


With all the aforesaid advantages of this book, it ends here as there are too many COMPLAINTS & OUTCRY  from many beginners, moderate and serious banknotes and coin collectors pertaining to its TOO EXHORBITANT FUTURE SET prices shown in the catalogue.

Many fail to understand the rationales for the prices to be so expensive. By doing so,the impact is disastrous – this will GREATLY deter new entry or beginners to come into this numismatic HOBBY market. Of course, those who have collected earlier relished the high exorhobitant prices but then when they want to get some items they don’t have or when they have sold their items and want to buy back they too will feel such unhappiness or unfairness.

Then again, maybe the author might defiantly defend it by saying – you tak ada otak – you don’t understand lah , you don’t know demand and supply lah, you cannot even  see that the book  clearly states that it is also set for the year 2014  which is #460 days away from its inaugural date of publication  in late September 2013!!!  Let applaud the author(s) as he has a very well -thought inflation technique and futuristic thinking for the public pertaining to the prices for banknotes and coins.
