4th Series of Malaysian Banknotes RM20 Commemorative


RM20 is back for the 4th Series after it was discontinued in 3rd Series of the Malaysian Banknotes. According to BNM, the reintroduction of RM20 denomination is meet public's need for an intermediary denomination between the RM10 and the RM50 denomination. This is for the convenience of the public in meeting the needs for payments.
The reverse side of the RM20 banknote features two of the most well-known species of sea turtles endemic to Malaysian waters - the Hawksbill Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) and Leatherback Turtle (Dermochelys coriacea). The two turtles were chosen to represent the rich and colourful marine life found in our tropical waters. The Hawsbill is easily identified by its curved beak and scaly shell while the Leatherback has a leathery skin and seven ridges on its shell. These gentle turtles are a reminder that their existence rests in the delicate balance of human activity and marine life conservation.

I have been looking all over the internet and can't seem to find any information on this bill my co-worker had me look up. So far from what I was ablet to find it's a RM100 6th serie serial # ZD0000000 Specimen. I can't find the value of this. Can any help us? Does the Specimen work mean, this was the fist note printed?

Specimen banknote Is always come with serial number of all zero and with the wording of 'Specimen'. It is normally issued by one central bank to other central banks to help in identifying and recognizing the new issuance of banknotes.

It is rare and usually transcated with high value.
