One Cent 1892, Coin from Sarawak - detailed information

One Cent 1892, Coin from Sarawak (demonetised 1953)
CoinOne Cent 1892

The one cent coin was the most popular denomination of the Sarawak dollar. Between 1892 and 1897, one cent coins were issued with a central hole; this is the first year of the type.

Coins issued in 1892 circulated for 50 years until the Japanese occupation forces replaced them with their own invasion currency in 1942. After the war, Sarawak did not regain independence and eventually became one of the states forming the Federation of Malaysia.
