New notes and Coins: Malaysian Ringgit

 Old ringgit bills to the left and new bills to the right.
You may be wondering why there are two sets of notes and coins in Malaysia. There seems to have been a change made recently around August 2012 to print new bills and mint new coins. So now, we not only have old and new currency floating around but we also have a new 20 Ringgit note.

Old coins are to the left.


  1. I have not got used to the new 50 sen and 20 sen coins. They are similar in size and weight.

  2. Happy New Year Stephanie!
    A new comer was asking for your contacts to find Nurseries in Ampang. I passed your details on to her. I hope Michelle got in touch with you.
    Have a fabulous 2013!!

  3. Happy New Year to you Erika :-D

    Yes Michelle has contacted me already. Btw, I have listed your site in my blog also. You have a great site! I am sure you can help my readers as well.

    Best regards,

  4. Thank you and Happy New Year to you too!!
