The market value for this coin in BU grade is so high.
Wonder is it worth keeping more than a single specimen?
Thanks a lot for sharing, mnfaj :)

I have my own doubt about these coin..I myself have 3 piece of these and thinking of adding this up until some otai2 advice me not to do so because they said this coin is not rare and the price will go down when some of the collectors who are keeping hundreds or thousands of these coins flooding the market with BU/UNC condition...

Dear mnfaj,
Now is more difficult to find a Malaysia 1971 10 cents coin in VF condition than the UNC/BU condition.
Most of the VF/EF in condition coins were sacrified for "Tarik Nombor".
Was told,the new stocks from down south country are not cheap anymore due to high exchange rates.Keep some good pieces may be a good ideas.

Hi whycollect,
Ya I have heard that a BU one has exceeded RM300. Pftt That is 30000 times than its face value. Real crazy! haha

Hi Danny,
Looking at the supply number of only 32k, I believe that there is always a huge demand for this coin. Happy collecting!

Hy Mr Dickson,
Yes you are totally right! A VF condition is a lot more scarce than a UNC one. Haha. Thinking of acquiring an UNC/BU one to pair with this one.

Mr Dickson, you are a well respect and known nuemistic. are the UNC/BU coins part of the 32K mintage. As these coins are totally different from Variety 1. I bought my first V1 EF condition at RM850 so indeed the price had increased. Also visit e-bay, you will see someone at RM4500.
