RM5 Uncut Banknotes - New Series
The new green RM5 denomination note issued in September 1999 depicts the "Wawasan 2020" theme of the current development Malaysian currency note series which reflects Malaysia's economic development and achievement towards a fully developed country. The construction sector has been selected as the design motif of the RM5 note, the fifth denomination issued in the current series (new series).
The obverse of the new RM5 note retains the dominant intaglio potrait of the First Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the distinctive anticopy square in the centre of the note. The predominant design emphasises the construction sector. This is represented by landmark buildings such as KLIA, Petronas Twin Towers and a geographical map bearing the landmark symbols representing Putrajaya and Cyberjaya. The security features in the note include the security thread with the repeated "BNM RM5" text, three-dimensional watermark potrait, anticopy feature known as "PEAK (R)" and security fibres in the paper.

CIRCULATED SILVER & GOLD COINS IN THE NORTHERN MALAY STATES (1600 UNTIL 1957)
Welcome to Aleph Coin Blog (Circulated Silver & Gold Coins in The Northern Malay States - Kedah, Perlis & Penang - Circa 1600 until 1957). This blog will preview my current collection or new information of coins that will later be added into my on-going project (that I am doing independently, due to my interest in History and Numismatic). I might be adding information of other coin and banknote that I came across. I am looking forward and much appreciated if someone can come to give information, sharing knowledge, sample of coins into making this project a reality. I also receive support from Dr Ibrahim Baker (a medical doctor, who has so much interest in Malay coins) and Dr Mahani Musa (expert in Penang's history, USM lecturer). Should you have information to relay, don't hesitate to contact me at email@example.com - Together, we work to preserving our history...
