One Cent 1920, Coin from Sarawak
CoinOne Cent 1920

The one cent coin was the most popular denomination of the Sarawak dollar. After a break in production, and a change in design, this coin was authorised for circulation by Order No. 1 of 1921 dated 21st January 1921. The coins circulated for 21 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.

This is a one-year type in copper-nickel.
