Bank Negara Malaysia Money Museum 2004 Aluminium Tokens Off Centre Strike With Proof Dies.

Lately, I collected a pair of Bank Negara Malaysia's Money Museum Souvenir Aluminium Tokens struck with proof dies and were struck in Off Centre Strike Error.
Off Centre Strike. Weight: 2.80gm. Diameter: 27.00mm
This minting your own souvenir tokens service was introduced in the old Money Museum of BNM for visitors who visit the Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) Money Museum. They can buy an aluminium blank and try to mint a token themself on a Coin Minting Machine provided by Money Museum Of BNM.
Composition: Aluminium.
This special service was provided by Money Museum Of BNM  from 1989 until 2006 and it was discontinued when the old Money Museum of BNM was closed for renovation. Every year, a different design was introduced and they were all together 18 designs,they were even  proof tokens issued in year 1989 and 1993.

When the new Money Museum (MAG) Of BNM, at the Sasana Kijang was relocated and relaunched in year 2011, this special service of minting a Money Museum souvenir token yourself on a Coin Minting Machine during your visit was no longer available.

In my post published on 31-3-2012, I sincerely hope and urged our Bank Negara Malaysia will consider to reintroduce this very interesting and special service again to visitors who visit the Sasana Kijang Money Museum of BNM in Kuala Lumpur.
