The 2nd Series of Malaysia Banknote (Type 1) was issued in 1982 with the signature of Tan Sri Dato' Abd Aziz bin Hj. Taha. This series of banknote has a blind mark on the upper left corner of the note and its series numbers were printed horizontally.
In 1986, the revised 2nd series (Type 2) was introduced by removing the blind mark and readjusting the appearance of series numbers which were printed vertically in red colour instead. This revised series carry the signature of Tan Sri Dato' Jaffar Hussein. The design of the rear side for this revised series for the denomination of RM1, RM5, RM10, RM50, RM100, RM500 and RM1000 remain unchanged.
However, Bank Negara Malaysia has revised the printed image on the reverse of the RM20 note. The reason of changing the image of Bank Negara building was not explained. The revised 2nd Series (Type 2) of this RM20 note carries the image of the Bank Negara Building that taken from the right angle instead of front view as shown in its earlier note (Type 1).
The Type 2 of 2nd Series of RM20 note features the right view of Bank Negara building
