158. Malaysia rm1 Blank

image 1: obverse and reverse of the blank planchet

This is a Type 1 Blank of Malaysia RM1 coin.

A blank is a round disc of metal punched from a long strip rolled for a specific thickness of an intended coin. The edge of the coin is not upended/upsetting yet. Ref.

Found this among many coins sold in a flea market at Johor Bahru.

Salam mnfaj,
depankanta pernah juga terjumpa sekeping blank syiling rm1 begini,sukar untuk pastikan adakah metal begini blank tulin atau palsu atau dibuat khas untuk dimasukkan pada mesin2 tertentu..
Terima kasih banyak2 mnfaj...

Thank you so much for your encouragement. By the way, collecting coins is also a part of my study! Especially on error coins. And for the Malay Sultanate Coins, it is due to my keen interest in history. Those who forgets the history are condemned to repeat it. :D
