Ten Cents, Coin Type from Sarawak (issued 1900 - 1934)
Coin TypeTen Cents

During the Japanese occupation of Sarawak in World War II, the occupiers melted down most of the silver coinage they could find. Much of the silver coming now on the market was used as ornaments. In some cases coins may have been buried with the dead and show small solder marks or (filled) holes. The coins were coated with a purple die when buried with the dead.
