New Commemorative Coin ordering process successfully reaches out to more customersRef No : 09/17/05 08 Sep 2017 Embargo : Not for publication or broadcast before 100 hours on Friday 08 September 2017
On 29 August 2017, in conjunction with the 29th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games and 9th ASEAN Para Games, Bank Negara Malaysia commenced the sale of commemorative coins through online ordering. This was to ensure greater convenience for members of the public to purchase these limited edition coins and to provide a fairer opportunity to more buyers nationwide. The online ordering was part of a new pre-ordering process where members of the public were able to order online via email and through the Bank’s offices nationwide.
There was encouraging response from members of the public for these commemorative coins, resulting in the Bank receiving orders from more than 2,000 interested buyers, about four times more than the previous sale. The Bank also introduced a new computer-aided balloting process for oversubscribed coins. The ordering and balloting exercise was witnessed by the Bank’s internal auditors for process integrity.
The order results are available online at www.bnm.gov.my (see attachment below), at Bank Negara Malaysia’s Museum and Art Gallery and the Bank’s offices nationwide.
Payment and Collection
The Bank has also extended the collection period to allow successful buyers to pay for and collect the commemorative coins at their convenience. Successful buyers may do so between 9.00a.m. to 4.00 p.m. from 8 to 12 September 2017 at Bank Negara Malaysia’s Museum and Art Gallery (daily, including on weekends and public holidays) and at the Bank’s offices in Penang, Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching and Kuala Terengganu (normal working days).
Buyers have to present valid identification in person for collection (e.g. MyKad for Malaysians/ Passport for non-Malaysians). Coins which are not collected by 4.00 p.m. on 12 September 2017 will be offered to buyers in the ballot reserve list. Retail sale of the Nordic Gold coins will be available at Bank Negara Malaysia’s Museum and Art Gallery from 13 September 2017 onwards.
