30th Anniversary Of Malaysia Independence Day 10 Ringgit Coin

Today is the third day of my coin sorting out. Today’s coin out from the box I really liked. Probably because of the $10 denomination in large bold on the front of the coin that caught my attention. This is the proof version that I have.

Yesterday was a Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) 30 years anniversary commemorative coin that I posted up and today is another 30 years anniversary coin but it is the anniversary of Malaysia Independence Day in 1987.

Below here is the front of the coin. The words Bank Negara Malaysia in capitals is seen at the topside with the coat of arms of Malaysia emblem right in the center. The lower part of the coin is the denomination of $10.

The rear side of the coin has more to look at. A fourteen-pointed star sits at the top side with the iconic Penang Bridge on the left side. An oil rig on the right side and probably the Proton national car below the oilrig. The year stated is from 1957 to 1987 with the words 30 Tahun Merdeka (30 Years Independence) seen at the lower half.

This coin comes in a navy blue velvet case that was snugly fitted into a cardboard box. The thing about velvet is that it seems to be a lint magnet. Note to self, clean before taking a picture else lint is very visible on close-up.

This is the case when opened. A fitted compartment for the coin case and a strap to hold the certificate in place. On the certificate is the serial number, the Bank Negara Malaysia logo and name can be seen.

On the inside of the certificate is printed with the words, “The Certificate of Authenticity” as the title and the main text body reads “This is to certify that this proof coin was minted by The Singapore Mint, Singapore under the authorization on Bank Negara Malaysia to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of Independence of Malaysia. This coin is legal tender in Malaysia.” At the bottom of the certificate are two signatures belonging to the Governor of Bank Negara Malaysia and the General Manager of The Singapore Mint.
