Standing figure of Britannia holding trident and shield with merchant ship in background, date in exergue.
Chinese characters and Jawi script in ornamental flower.
Chinese: One Dollar
Jawi: One Ringgit
* Issued to facilitate British trade in the Orient, the reverse design incorporated the denomination in Chinese characters and Malay script (often found with chop marks which do not detract from the value - see below).
Struck at three separate mints as follows:
B - Bombay mint Found on tip of middle fork on trident; missing on some 1895, 1897 & 1898 issues;
C - Calcutta mint Found between Britannia's foot and the shield; missing on some 1900 issues;
No mark - London mint (1925 & 1930 issues only)
* Mintage figures quoted include all varieties for the given mint and year.
* I am accumulating data on weights and dimensions of specific years and mints to help detect forgeries for our community. If anyone could help please contact myself, Mark240590 or post in the thread found here:
* Schön lists these coins under Malaysia.
