About the currency

Coins and notes

The ringgit operates almost identically to the dollar (in fact, some stores may even label prices in Malaysia as dollars), divided up into 100 sens. All Malaysian coins are in sens, worth 5, 10, 20 and 50 apiece. Malaysian notes are set at 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 ringgits each.

Facts about the currency

  • Most Malaysians refer to the currency in its proper terms, but certain people will call it ‘dollars’ just for convenience, and some northern places like Kelantan still call it the riyal.
  • A polymer 50 ringgit note was released to commemorate the 1998 Commonwealth Games, but it was so rare that it’s now a collector’s item – so hold onto it if you find one!
  • The first generation of Malaysian banknotes are today worth far more than their printed value – a whole set was sold at auction for £100,000 in 2007.
