Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) is collaborating with Bank Negara to launch two commemorative coins in conjunction with the Kuala Lumpur Golden Jubilee celebration. This is in addition to the release of stamps and first-day covers via Pos Malaysia.

With regard to the commemorative coins, Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim said that they will be issued in two denominations, namely the Silver Sterling Coloured with a face value of RM10, and Nordic Brilliant Uncirculated (B.U.) gold shade with a face value of RM1. “Both types of coins are available at BNM, but the sales dates will be announced soon,” he said.

Meanwhile, BNM has yet to share details about the commemorative coins on its website as of the time of writing, including its weight, design, and available quota. The central bank will typically share these specifics ahead of time, before sales begin.

“As for the commemorative stamps and first-day covers, these will be sold to the public at RM38 per set from 7 July at the post offices and Philatelic Bureau of Pos Malaysia,” said Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim.

The minister further shared that this round of commemorative items is the third edition to be issued after those that were delivered back in 1972 and 1990. “In 1972, the commemorative coins, stamps, and first-day covers were issued in conjunction with the declaration of Kuala Lumpur as a city, and in 1990, they were issued in conjunction with DBKL’s 100th anniversary celebration as a local authority,” he said.

Finally, Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan said that he hopes the issuance of the commemorative coins, stamps, and first-day covers will serve as a meaningful reflection Kuala Lumpur’s development in the past fifty years as one of Malaysia’s capital cities.
