My Trip To Kelantan (16th To 18Th August 2014) In conjunction With The Coins Exhibition Of Museum Kelantan.(Day 3-A)
On Monday morning, I had my breakfast in the hotel. By 8.15am, Mr.Selvam and I walked to the museum. There were already a big crowd gathered at the Museum Kelantan in conjunction with the opening ceremony and launching of the "Coins Exhibition Of Museum Kelantan".
We got ourselves registered  for the seminar. I started to mingle around with many Kelantanese  numismatists. I was approached to authenticate their collections. Among those who were already arrived were Dato Sharuddin, Tuan Haji Alwi, En.Poknik, Tuan Ahmad Nazery, Mr.Silmon Loo and friends, UpTown Bank Note En Rosli and friends, Michael Chew and partners, Ustaz Rusdi Jusoh, Rusdi Ahmad, Chris, Haji Abdullah, the Vice Presidents, Treasurer, Honorary Secretary and committee members of Kelab Warisan Malaysia and many more.....
To my surprised, the Boss of Nasi Kampung Air Dingin, En.Ahmad Sanusi presented to me two packets of his Nasi. He wanted me to take it as my lunch. I indeed very touched by his warm hospitality.

The seminar was started by Dato' Sharuddin entitled "The Gold Kijang Kupang of Kelatan" at 9 o'clock. The seminar hall was packed with participants. He touched and briefed the audiences on the varieties of Kelantan gold Kupang. The details are available in the book " Syiling Emas Negeri Kelantan-Matawang Kesultanan Melayu Negeri Kelantan" edited by Dato' Sharuddin himself.
The second paper was presented by Ustaz Rusdi Jusoh on the tin coinage of Negeri Kelantan. His presentation was very interesting. He stressed on the varieties of the different inscriptions of Jawi writing on the Kelantan tin coins. A very lively presentation by the Ustaz.
The seminar finished at 11.45am. That's a tea break while we were waiting for the arrival of the Deputy Menteri Besar of Kelantan to launch the opening of the  "Coins Exhibition Of Museum Kelantan".
The opening ceremony was grand. It was celebrated with welcome speech by YB MEJ.(Rtd) Dato' Hj. Md. Anizam Bin Ab. Rahman, the Member of Kelantan State Meeting Council and The Committee Chairman of Culture, Tourism And Heritage, followed by the important speech of the main host, the Deputy Menteri Besar. He suggested and encouraged the local communities to set up the Kelantan Numismatic Society. He also said that if the state finance prosperous, he would like to have a bigger state museum.
That was a traditional dance before the colorful launching of the "Coins Exhibition Of Museum Kelantan" with a box of Kelantan Pitis tin coins and Pitis Tin Tree, symbolized prosperous, abundance and flourish. Then the VIPs and VVIPs were invited to visit the coins and banknotes exhibition.
