BNM 30 Years Anniversary Commemorative Coin

As I continue to dig through my stash of long lost coins, I came across this coin with a face value of thirty ringgit. Value wise not bad, design-wise…… ummmm let’s just say the front is simple and the rear is better. The more I look at these coins, the urge to collect them increases. Looking at the mint coin from overseas has triggered a wanting. Yes, I want them all. They are so nice to look at, and they are silver.

This here is a Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) 30th-anniversary commemorative coin 1989. Bank Negara Malaysia is also known as the Central Bank of Malaysia.

In my possession is the non- proof version that comes in a blister pack. It is issued in January 1989. It is made from 925 silver and size wise……large. It has a diameter of 37.79mm and weighs 22.0 grams. Its thickness is 2.5mm and has a mintage of 47000 coins.

There is also a proof version of the same coin with a mintage of 10000 pcs. that comes with a box and certificate. These coins are the first proof coin mint from Kilang Wang BNM.

On the front of the coin can be seen the face value of thirty ringgit right in the center. On top of it is the BNM (Bank Negara Malaysia) logo and the years from 1959 to 1989. On the lower part of the coin is written ‘BANK NEGARA MALAYSIA’ (Central Bank of Malaysia).

On the rear of the coin written on the bottom is ‘ULANG TAHUN KE-30′ which translate to ’30 Years Anniversary’. The Malaysian flag can be seen together with a few landmark buildings. The building on the right is the Bank Negara Malaysia building and the one on the left is the Sultan Abdul Samad Building in Kuala Lumpur.
