PATANI-KELANTAN DINAR MATAHARI/FLOWER TYPE GOLD KUPANG SS61

The Dinar Matahari or Flower Type Gold Kupang of Patani-Kelantan SS61
Rarity: RRR
The local name given to this type of Gold Kupang coin is Dinar Matahari or Sun Coin.
Generally, numismatists are of the opinion that the design is a flower, possibly a lotus, a kind of tropical water-lily which grows abundantly in Siam and the Malay Peninsular. It is symbolic in Buddhism and reflects Siamese influence.

It should be borne in mind that Siamese influence was extensive, particularly in the northern states of the Malay Peninsular, although the local sultans seem to have preserved their own religion and culture free from Siamese interference.

Obverse: A 6 petal flower.

Reverse: In Arabic " Malik Al Adil " (The Just Ruler)
Edge: Plain.

Weight: 0.44gm

Diameter: 9.00mm

Composition: Gold

Rarity: RRR

For the first time, this Dinar Matahari Gold Kupang to be listed in our next up and coming The Collectibles Auction Asia No.7/2016, (CAA) Auction to be held on 23rd April 2016 in Singapore Landmark Village Hotel.
Happy bidding !!

It was presented to him by the Governor and Members of Board of  Directors from Bank Negara Malaysia. The current owner of this VVIP Proof coins set is Mr. Tang Fook Foo (A retired BNM Senior Staff).

Since I had put on the existence of this VVIP Proof coins set on my facebook, I had received numerous of images of a similar set, but there were the images of a same set of VVIP Proof coins set that was awarded to an other retired Bank Negara Malaysia security official.
An other set known was presented to Tuan Haji Kadri Bin Haji Kilak Ali. He had served the Bank Negara Malaysia as a bank security officer from 5th September 1966 to 30th December 1982. (16 years & 3 months). This set is now owned by a collector from the Northern region of Peninsular Malaysia.

It is a wooden cum pewter box with 10 holes covered with blue satin cloth to secure the 10 pieces of proof coins. There were the 1967 Copper 1 sen, Copper-Nickel 5 sen, 10 sen, 20 sen & 50 sen Proof coin; 1969 10th Anniversary of Bank Negara Malaysia Commemorative Proof Silver Ringgit; Scarce 1971 Copper-Nickel Proof Ringgit of Parliament House Series; 1971 Copper-Nickel Proof 5 Ringgit of Parliament House Series; a very scarce 1971 RM100 Commemorative Gold (18.66gm) Proof coin of Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman & a 1972 Copper-Nickel Proof Ringgit KL City Commemorative coin.

The Kijang coins derived their name from the motif of the Bull/Barking deer or Kijang on the obverse of the Kupang. This motif is used as the logo of Bank Negara Malaysia.

Between 1400 to 1780, a number of gold coins or Kupang were known to be minted for used in Patani and Kelantan.
