2003 Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace (LIMA) Proof Set Of 3
***And from under the staircase of a very low-profile collector, here is the nothing-to-shout-about Set of 3 Proof Coins in a box issued in 2003 for the Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Show.
These proof coins come in a rather odd-shaped plastic-like box, and of course, with the tiny 8.6gm pure gold coin as its centre piece.
The gold coin should be worth around RM1,500 today, based on its weight vis-a-vis the current spot gold price & as such, this Set of 3 should be worth around RM2,000 to RM2,400, as after all, only the gold coin has value as the other 2 pieces in the form of silver & copper-nickel are mere fillers.
My collector friend is trying to sell this set to me at a ridiculous price of RM3,500, but I am not biting.
Definitely, something that's not worth gloating about. The best thing to gloat about is having a low-numbered Replacement banknote & that's really my cup of tea, I suppose.
