Ref No : 12/17/18 29 Dec 2017 Embargo : For immediate release    

Bank Negara Malaysia wishes to announce the availability of the online ordering facility for the sale of commemorative currencies issued in conjunction with the 60th Anniversary of the Signing of the Federation of Malaya Independence Agreement, the installation of His Majesty Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong XV Sultan Muhammad V and the 60th Anniversary of National Archives of Malaysia.

Members of the public are also advised to place their orders through the BNM online system and not with any other party or unauthorised ordering facilities.
