Malaysia Parliament House Series 1971 $1.00 UK Royal Mint Variety With Rim Clip Error.
Many error coins collectors will agreed with me, to find a piece of big size coin with error is a difficult task,because of the big surface on the coin, it is very easy to spot any minor errors.
This is a piece of Malaysia Parliament House Series or the first series of  Malaysia $1.00 crown size coin with a Rim Clipped error occurred at the position of 5 o'clock on the reverse of the coin. To labelled it as a piece of RRR rare in grade is because it was minted in UK Royal Mint ( known to be very stringent on his quality control) and still in brilliant uncirculated condition. On its lettered edge, the font of alphabet "M" used on the word "Malaysia" is a font used by UK Royal Mint variety.

Rim Clip Error
According to the Error Coin Encyclopedia by Margolis and Weinberg, its technically called a disk clip. Others may refer to it as a "rim clip". The rim clip is major enough to be categorized as a clip but minor enough to not show the typical characteristics of a clip such as the Blakesley effect. Typically, its just enough of a clip to disrupt the formation of the coins rim and nothing more. Rim Clips usually have fully reeded edges since the minting process itself actually enlarges the planchet.
