    For my 100th post, I want to share my latest entry to my Penang Coins collection. Owaa this coin makes me to go on diet, haha.

   By the way, I notice that there is some slight miss struck on the obverse. Is that something normal to this coin or it is an error?

   I no longer has any Penang coin to share, so I think for the next posts is Kelantan! Because I just got back from my village and I do not get back empty-handed. ;)

Hi mnfaj,
Congratulations, you've got yourself an original uniface, haha.
About the slight off struck on these coins.
Suppose many of these older coins were not well struck.
Haha, just our guess.
Thanks a lot for sharing, mnfaj :)

Dear mnfaj,
Nice Penang Coins collection.
I am yet to start with one!
Mr.Bob Chew at 7th Floor of Berjaya Times Square Shopping Complex has almost the complete set.
You keep it up! Cheers.
