Gold Kijang Kupang Of Patani-Kelantan Facing To The Right.
Rarity: RRR/SS56
In Master Saran Singh's book " The Encyclopaedia of THE COINS OF MALAYSIA SINGAPORE AND BRUNEI 1400-1967", this Kupang was coded as SS56. This Patani-Kelantan Gold Bull/Kijang Kupang facing to the right was graded as RRR in rarity and is classified as an extremely rare item.

I was lucky to be given a chance to view and hold it in my hand the actual coin during our Malaysia Numismatic Society Auction No.163 which was held at Museum Negara Malaysia last Sunday.(22-3-2015).

I was told by a senior collector of Malay State Sultanate Coinage, this is a "must" piece to be collected by a serious collector of Malay State Sultanate Gold Kupang. He told me, so far he had seen around 12 pieces of this rare SS56 Patani-Kelantan Gold Bull/Kijang Kupang facing to the right. Mostly are in serious collector's custody!

Obverse : A humped bull/Kijang (Barking Deer) facing to the right with the tail pointing down. A crescent moon and sun above the Kijang.

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

Weight: 0.62gm.

Diameter: 8.5mm

Composition: Gold.

Grade: RRR
