       I rarely bought any foreign coins. This is so far the most expensive foreign coin I have ever bought cause it costs me more than a hundred ringgit. I don't have any reference to refer but from my googling, I guess it is better for me to keep this coin alone without her other siblings, because Sumatra's coins have too many siblings too collect!

Hi mnfaj,
Suppose good things don't come cheap, haha.
But really don't know much about Sumatran coins.
Thanks a lot for sharing, mnfaj :)
