Malaysia 1981 50 Cents Coin Brilliant Uncirculated
***Never have I seen a 50 Sen coin from the Parliamant Series as lustrous and as beautifully struck as this one from the year of 1981.
This is definitely what all Pakar Numis' will label as a Choice BU type of coin, so lustrous, very few or hardly any bagmarks & so well & sharply struck, despite the fast passage of 30 years.
And of course, that can't be said for the current Hibiscus Series as coins from this series seem to be poorly struck, perhaps due to worn-out dies or even lousy planchets & they seem 'invaded' with lots of bagmarks.
As such, there is a feeling that coins from the Hibiscus Series that exhibit the traits of BU condition would command very high prices in the numis market in the not too distant future.
Actually, that's not what I have opined. That's the expresed opinion of a few Pakar Numis' during our recent alfresco tea-tarik session. And this speculation should hold water as after all they came from the mouths of an esteemed group of numis folks.
