A Complete Educational Reference on Malaysia Banknotes and Coins 1786 – 2006 (3rd Edition)

There are many guide books on Malaysia Banknote in the market. One of my favorable guide books on Malaysia Banknotes is “A Complete Educational Reference on Malaysia Banknotes and Coins 1786 - 2006” edited by K.N. Boon. This is the third edition which was published in September 2006. This edition has incorporated a complete information and update on Malaysian Banknotes from 1786 to 2006. It consists 386 colour pages that show quality and beautiful banknotes.


A Complete Educational Reference on Malaysia Banknotes and Coins 1786 – 2006 (3rd Edition)


This guide book divides into two main sections: Coins and Banknotes. The coin section as the first part of the book starts with the first Penang’s coin that shows the balemark of the British East India Company (E.I.C) in 1787 as Penang was the first British Settlement in Malay Peninsula in 1786. It covers until the recent commemorative coins that issued by Bank Negara Malaysia. The banknote as the second section of the book provides a comprehensive collection of Malaysia banknotes. It has the collection of the banknotes that issued by private banking in 1866 until the current circulation banknotes that we are using now.


This guide book provides useful information to collectors. A collector can use it as a reference to identify the history of the banknote, issuance date, signatory, banknote's printer company and as well as it current collection value. As a banknote and coin collector, I am sure that you want to add it into your collection. It can be purchased at MPH bookstore with a reasonable price.
