We only knew that the new Malaysian coins have been released this year. It was my SIL's family who told us when they came to visit. They only had the 10 cents at that time so, that's the only new coin we got to see. They told us that the new coins seem lighter and 'cheaper' compared to the old coins.
So that means, we also have to start collecting the old coins now too before they get deficient. My Hubby has this coin collection so, these old coins can add up to it. I also remember my mom who had this silver coin collection. She didn't buy silver coins but collected the very old peso coins that were said to have silver in it. It's sad that even those coins has already been washed away from the flood. :(
