TRIP TO MALACCA COIN AUCTION (14-12-2014) PART 1

My Trip To Malacca Coin Auction (14-12-2014) Part 1
I arrived in Malacca town on Saturday noon with my beloved wife. Before heading to check in to the Hotel Puri, I made a surprise visit to Mr. Ng of Seong Yeong Motors Sdn Bhd. at Taman Peringgit Jaya.
Mr. Tristan Ng, is a very young and energetic numismatist in Malacca. He is organizing a two days big event; The World Heritage City Melaka Numismatic Cultural Show (马六甲钱币古玩文化交流展) on 20.12.2014 & 21.12.2014 (Saturday & Sunday).Time: 9.30am to 6.00pm.We had a good chat for about half an hour. I am wishing him a big success on this event and praised him for his good effort on promoting the king of hobbies, numismatics.

I checked in to the Hotel Puri at 1.00pm. While waiting for the Singaporean numismatists to arrive, I went to "lepak" around in Jonker Street "cari-cari makan". I walked to Boson Goh's shop, it is just about 300 meters away from my hotel. I previewed some of the lots that I am interested to bid. I was served by Mr.Goh and his lovely wife. Later, I met Sifu Kenny Ong Yew Chuan for a short meeting.

My Singaporean numismatist friends Mr and Mrs Chong Kee Tho and Mr and Mrs Wong Hon Sum arrived in the late afternoon. We still managed to previewed some of their items that they are interested to bid before Boson Goh close his shop.



We had dinner at our regular restaurant, the Teo Soon Loong Chan Teo Chew Seafood Restaurant along Jalan Hang Kasturi. A very famous restaurant in Malacca that serve good Teo Chew cuisine. We asked Boson Goh to book our table a month ago before our visit. If not, without advance booking ,they will not serve you even though you are the Prime Minister.

WEBBING OF COIN BLANKING

The Webbing Of Coin Blanking
The first step in the coin making process involves the feeding of the metal strips through what is known as a "blanking" press.The production process of coin blanks starts with a material spool from which coin blanks are cut.
The strips come rolled in a coil.It is very important that the strip is handled with extreme care so that the surface is not scratched and the maximum yield of blanks is acquired. Each coil is fed through a blanking press, which punches out round discs called blanks.
The blank presses have a bank of punches (or rams) which travel downward through the strip of coinage metal and into a steel bedplate which has holes corresponding to the punches. The presses punch out blanks each time the punches make their downward cycle. After the blanks are cut, they are individually inspected, the inspection criteria being, weight, diameter, and visual acceptance. Blanks are placed in an annealing furnace to relieve stress. The furnace is an open-ended steel belt furnace, equipped with heating and cooling zones that are protected by a continuous flow of inert gas. After stress relieving, the blanks are placed in a heated acid solution to eliminate any surface contamination. The blanks are now ready to be used.
Webbing
The leftover strip, called webbing is shredded and recycled. .

M3S 20 CENTS "DOT" DIE GOUGE ERROR

Malaysia 3rd Series 2014 20 Cents With "Dot" Die Gouge Error.
Rarity:RR
Die gouges (or dents) are common on coins and like finding angels in the clouds, you will find them where you want if you look long enough.

These are raised thick bulges, usually on the fields of a struck coin (although they may occasionally be seen on the design), which are created by the striking of a hard object against the die.
A "DOT" or "DOTS" on a coin actually is a Die Gouge Error coin. Die Gouge Error is a form of die error when the hammer die struck through a small round object on the bottom die during the striking , thus creating a hole. This hole, which is an incused element on the die will result in a raised element on the subsequent coins came into the minting press. It was started as a tiny gouge on the working die but it was not rectify.The continuous usage of the die with die gouges formed dots on the coins.The "DOTS" enlarged and became bigger and bigger until it can be seen with a naked eyes.
A Malaysia (M3S) 2014 20 Cents exhibited a "Dot" on a petal of the hibiscus flower at the 4 o'clock position on the reverse.

THE 3RD SERIES OF MALAYSIAN COINS TOURIUM SET.

Malaysian 3rd Series (M3S) Coins Set By Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board.

Tourism Malaysia or Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board (MTPB) is an agency under the Ministry of Tourism, Malaysia.
The Tourist Development Corporation of Malaysia (TDC) was established on 10 August 1972 as an agency under the former Ministry of Trade and Industry by an Act of Parliament. With the inception of the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Tourism on 20 May 1987, TDC was moved to this new ministry; and became the Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board (MTPB) through the Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board Act 1992. Popularly known as Tourism Malaysia, its full focus is on promoting Malaysia domestically and internationally.

Tourism Malaysia's objective is to promote Malaysia as an outstanding tourist destination. It aims to showcase Malaysia's unique wonders, attractions and cultures; develop domestic tourism and enhance Malaysia's share of the market for meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE). Its ultimate goal is to increase the number of foreign tourists to Malaysia, extend the average length of their stay and so increase Malaysia's tourism revenue.

Tourism Malaysia aims to encourage tourism and its related industries in Malaysia. It is hoped that this would help promote new investments in the country, as well as provide increased employment opportunities. The growth of tourism would also contribute positively to the country's economic development and quality of life.
Visit Malaysia Year 2014 is the nation's biggest and grandest tourism celebration with Malaysia Truly Asia's endless wonders of events, festivals and activities all-year round. This is the perfect time to see, feel and experience Malaysia!

The Proboscis Monkey has been chosen as the mascot while the promotional campaign has started in 2013 with a series of year-long special events and activities leading to VMY 2014.

The proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus) or long-nosed monkey, known as the bekantan in Malay, is a reddish-brown arboreal Old World monkey that is endemic to the south-east Asian island of Borneo. You can get close with Proboscis Monkey at the national parks and wildlife sanctuaries such as Bako National Park, Klias National Park, Kulamba Wildlife Reserve, Sungai Samunsam Wildlife Sanctuary and Lubuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary.

These are the information that you can find from the website of The Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board (MTPB).

I consider myself is always lucky in numismatic. Few days ago, a gentlemen who only want to be known as Mr.J.  gave me a set of M3S (5 sen 10sen 20sen and 50 sen) coins set. Something very special about this M3S coins set is it was produced by The Tourism Malaysia or Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board (MTPB) as a tourism souvenir Malaysian coins set.
There are all together 8 pieces of Malaysian 3rd series coins, two pieces per denomination in this coin set. Each denomination has a piece showed the obverse and another displayed the reverse of the coin. There were glued against a hard cardboard. Behind the hard cardboard is the brief description of the denominations.

Then the coins set is packed with a hard cover folder, the inner part of this folder is with full details information on our M3S coins. On the front cover of the folder is the title " THE THIRD SERIES OF MALAYSIAN COINS" with Tourism Malaysia logo on the bottom left corner and the logo of Visit Malaysia Year 2014 on bottom right corner. Behind the folder is the full address, email and website address of our Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board (MTPB).

Mr.J. free me this very special M3S tourism souvenir Malaysian coins set produced by Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board because he knows that I will share with you! Cheers!
