Malaysia Parliament House Series 1969 50 Cents Coin With Strike Through Errors.
Recently, we had been talking so much about Malaysia Parliament House series 1969 50 Cents with realised price of RM2800 for a piece of Security Edged (SE) variety in choice uncirculated  in MNS Auction 157 on 29th September 2013 and another piece graded by NGC in AU55 with Milled Edge (ME) was realised at RM10,230 in Collectibles Auction Asia (CAA) on 19th October 2013 in Singapore.

This is a piece of Malaysia Parliament House 50 Cents coin with similar year but is with Strike Through Errors.
A Struck Through mint errors is sometimes called Filled Die mint errors because the coin and the die have a foreign object in between during the strike. Debris, (which can build up around machinery), made up of grease, oil, metal filings, etc., may work itself into and cover the dies. When this occurs it can fill certain areas of design and prevent those areas from being struck up on the coins the dies are striking.
In this case we can see that the reverse was the recipient of obvious Strike Through Errors, likely it was a struck through filings that were accumulated on the dies.The affect areas are from 11 o'clock to almost at 2 o'clock position.

  4. hi,Niew...where can i sell the 1969 50cent?

  5. Jenn Yong,
    Must see the condition of your coin first. A lot of people thought a piece of 1969 50 Cents already can ask for RM2800.Your coin has to be a brilliat uncirculated condition, if your 1969 50 cents is a used, circulated, cleaned coin, it worths RM15 to RM25 only. Please don't get too excited!

  9. Hi Niew, may i know what is the value for year 1955 - 50 cent coin with security edge? is it under rare coin?

  10. Hi james toh,
    1955 - 50 cent coin with security edge should be the Queen Elizabeth II 50 Cents. UNC condition is RM450, but if it was used or circulated is only worth RM25 in very fine condition.
