116. Malaysia 20 Sen Second Series Varieties

image 1: obverse and reverse of variety A

image 2: obverse and reverse of variety B

     There are varieties among our circulation coins. Some of them are highly distinct, such as the Bunga Raya on 2001 20 Sen coin, and some of them are quite indistinct. Shown here is the varieties of Malaysia 20 Sen 1998.

Variety A:
  •  rounded rim's edge.
  •  same font size in the date "1998" of about 2.67mm.
  •  letterings have longer serif.

Variety B:
  •  squared rim's edge. 
  •  different font size in the date "1998" with a bigger "8" of about 2.82mm and  2.58mm for "1", and "9".
  • letterings have shorter serif.

    I hope to develop a list of variety for Malaysian coins. If you are happen to have discovered new varieties, kindly inform me so that I can list it here. And correct me if I am using inaccurate terms or explaination. Thank you in advance and let us together build this list.
