     I think I have posted too much of error coins. I guess in the next week I shall post other categories in my collection. 

    For the past weeks I bought quite a lot of Penang coins which not surprisingly had blow a big hole in my pocket. So for this transition post between error coin and Penang coin, I post about a Penang coin which have an error. Hehe cheers!
