Nilai duit lama

I had been writing about "nilai duit lama" (Malaysia old currency value) a long time ago but still many of my readers, email me asking for the same thing. The best way to know what is the value of Malaysia coins and banknotes are by buying any of this two books; Steven Tan Standard catalogue or KN Boon Books. You will get the latest nilai duit lama from any of the books. What I am sharing with everyone is from Steven Tan old catalogue books. It is just meant for a new collector or anyone who own an old coins to understand Malaysia Coins and banknote value. If you're really serious on collecting, you should buy any of those books.

For "nilai duit syiling", you can read my post; Check your coin value. Only Malaysia Parliament coin series are displayed on that post. This is because the 2nd series @bunga raya coin series value are mostly only have face value. Old doesn't mean the value and prices are higher. Many readers mistakenly think that their old coins can bring them fortune. That why you can see many sellers in selling their old coins for thousand of ringgit. I am sharing the price value to prevent Malaysian from selling their coins for a ridiculous price.

What coins that you should be looking for?
