92.Malaysia x999 Filled Die Error

image 1: obverse and reverse of the coin

image 2: close up view 

     Only silhouette of the number 1 can be seen.  A type of minor error which can be found easily among our circulation coins. This post by  Mr Dickson describes how this happen in a simple way.

    Usually die filled error does not have any premium but still of course you can sell it for mutual agreement, including to me. I am still interested in this die filled error because they can create speculation (not this specimen of course). For example if the last digit of the year on the coin cannot be seen, how would you guess the year the coin was minted for?

    And through the net I have found out that a die filled error has caused an American coin to form the words " IN GOD WE RUST" instead of " IN GOD WE TRUST ". Quite interesting specimen to have isn't?

Hi whycollect,
Sharing our collections perhaps one of the joys in collecting coins and banknotes.

Hi Dickson,
Haha Sa Puloh Ringgit the ever popular note which is sadly not exist. One number missing is still okay, I wonder how you would guess it if more than 1 number is missing, the bomoh will also surrender! hehe
