1961 MBB Queen Elizabeth II 5 cents

A new member to my QE2 coin collection. Though this coin doesn't really cost much as compared to her counterpart in the 50 cents, this piece is still considered as one of my best piece.

1973 Parliament Series 50 sen....UNC perhaps?

Just another lucky day for me, perhaps not for the others. The Malay auntie selling the nasi campur in the canteen gave me this coin as balance when I had my late lunch there.

Can this coin be graded as UNC? I am no coin grader as many would think I am.

Straits Settlement 1932 King George V Half Cent PCGS MS65BN

The newest member of my Straits Settlement low denomination coins. 1932 half cent is PCGS MS65BN condition.

How many pieces have survived in this condition and slabbed? One can find out from the PCGS population report. I need not commend on that.

1920 Straits Settlement King George V 1 cent PCGS MS64RB

This 1 cent coin that I have is one of the 55 million pieces coin struck. For almost a century ago, this 1 cent coin could probably well buy you a very nice meal for the day...

But what this 1 cent can do now? After nearly 1 century, 1 cent is not even enough to buy you a piece toilet tissue paper to wipe your butt when you are in need at the Puduraya Bus Terminal.
