These commemorative coins are also available for sale in a Set of 2. The set is priced at RM330. Each set comprises one coloured sterling silver proof coin and one Nordic gold proof coin. A total of 1,000 sets will be available for sale.

Coin design

The commemorative coins are available in two designs – obverse and reverse.

The obverse features images of the Kuala Lumpur skyline and modern transportation. They are juxtaposed against the clock face of Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad. This symbolises the passage of time since the granting of city status to Kuala Lumpur in 1972.

It portrays the city’s progress and development into a modern city.

In the reverse design, the top circumference features the text “Bank Negara Malaysia” to depict the issuing authority, and the event logo (highlighted in colour on silver coins only).

The Istana Budaya building and elements from the Perdana Botanical Garden are also featured. They signify Kuala Lumpur being a cultural centre and environmentally friendly city. The text “10 Ringgit” and “1 Ringgit” are shown at the bottom circumference, representing the face value of the coins.

Sale of commemorative coins

To provide a fair opportunity for members of the public to buy these limited edition coins, there will be a purchase limit of one Set of 2, one coloured sterling silver coin (proof) and up to five Nordic gold (B.U.) coins per person.

Members of the public can place their orders at duit.bnm.gov.my until 11pm, Sunday, November 27.

Members of the public are advised to place their orders through the Bank Negara Malaysia online system and not with or through any other party or unauthorised ordering facility.
