During then,Bankgebouw Negara Malaysia (BNM) wasgoed ter the process of setting up our nave mint factory ter Batu Tiga,Shah Alam.
When the factory wasgoed ready to mint our very own Malaysia coinage te May 1971 ,they called up to waterput a zekering to London Mint,however 32,236 chunks of 1971 Ten cents coins were minted.So,wij took it.Together wasgoed 500,000 lumps of Malaysia 1971 One Dollar Coin minted by London Mint.(MALAYSIA COIN STORY-MALAYSIA ONE RINGGIT YEAR 1971 MINTED Te UK.)
The very first version of story,only 32,236 chunks were minted te London Mint is not wooing,London Mint can produce few hundred thousand of coins a day,unless they minted our Malaysia coin 1971 Ten cents for a few hours only!While the 500,000 lumps of Malaysia 1971 One Dollar Coin minted by London Mint can be true.
The 2nd version of story wasgoed not true because the worst floods succesnummer Kuala Lumpur te January 1971,resulted 32 people were killed and 180,000 people were affected,and our Malaysia Shah Alam Royal Mint te Batu Tiga only embarked its operation on 4th May 1971,(MALAYSIA COIN STORY:THE COIN MINTING PROCESS Ter MALAYSIA.).
So, the third version of story can be true?Or gets closer to the truth?
Could the reason of due to dies broke a good reaction?A fresh Mint when starts to operate can cause a loterijlot of technical problems,quality problems,material problems. etc.
Could it be BNM realized that wij had sufficient stock of Ten cents coins, a total mintage of 235,000,000 chunks were minted for year 1967 and 1968.
Ter 1971,BNM minted 47.8 million lumps of 1 cent,16.6 million chunks of Five cents,Ten million lumps of 20 cents,8.Four million chunks of 50 cents and Two.Four million lumps of One Dollar coin,but why Ten cents were minted only 32,236 lumps ?
There are no Malaysia coin te any denomination being issued ter year 1972.
