These are my favourite Johor Katun coins.
I find being able to read and write in Jawi is an advantage in collecting Malay Sultanate Coins. My friend, En. Nasser even has been able to read some Chinese characters in his Chinese Cash Coins collection.
If some Katun coins are not quite interesting as they are plain, these are not. Some Arabic letterings were placed in unusual manners. This could be a form of calligraphy or old spellings. The Jawi which I rewrote in image 4 are according to current standard writings.
