Sarawak: Coin One Cent 1929
CoinOne Cent 1929

The one cent coin was the most popular denomination of the Sarawak dollar. Coins issued in 1929 circulated for 13 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.
