RINGGIT MALAYSIA

On 12 June 1967, the Malaysian dollar, issued by the new central bank, Bank Negara Malaysia, replaced the Malaya and British Borneo dollar at par.

The Malay names ringgit and sen were officially adopted as the sole official names in August 1975. Previously they had been known officially as dollars and cents in English and ringgit and sen in Malay, and in some parts of the country this usage continues.

The use of the dollar sign "$" (or "M$") was not replaced by "RM" (Ringgit Malaysia) until around March 1993.

Old spellings which later perfected after a unified spelling system was introduced in 1972.

Spellings that were later perfected:

DI-PERLAKUKAN = DIPERLAKUKAN (verb)
SA-PULOH = SEPULUH (numerical coefficient)

GABENOR was affected and new spelling was GABENUR, but DBP later has it corrected back to GABENOR.

MYTH & FAKE

It has been rumoured that this banknote exists in two different watermark varieties. One with Malayan tiger and the other with the portrait of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong.

It needs to be clarified that one with the portrait is a fake (modified) and it has never exist.
