Understanding the Pitfalls/Dangers of Collecting Malaysian Coin cards

Reading the title of this post seems to contradict this blog’s motto of fun, pleasure, investment. Why is this so?

For the past few months, fellow collectors who are  pursuing our “Malaysian” coin cards frantically  and were not able to do so because either they cannot find them or the prices of such coin cards have gone exhorbitantly ” high and wild”. Some are speculating the prices of  certain coin cards ( not to be named)  to be at certain high level like it is a stock market!!

Yep, the ugly part of collecting these Malaysian coin cards is that due to its limited quantity ( see below table for its authorized mintage), certain quarters have “cornered” the coin cards, hoard them in their drawers and then wait for people to search for them and then slowly push out the coin cards and keep raising the prices!

My two cent to those who are starting to consider coin collecting as a hobby:-

  • if possible please do not  start collecting Malaysian coin card and go for  other avenue of coin collecting- just imagine that to date of writing there were altogether 35 issues ( including coin in education and the 1990 coins and 2011 new Malaysian coins).
  • for those who have started and have some Malaysian coin cards please be aware of such happenings! Do you want to abandon your collection and look for other avenue or to continue at your risks?
