Sarawak: Coin One Cent 1930
CoinOne Cent 1930

The one cent coin was the most popular denomination of the Sarawak dollar. Coins issued in 1930 circulated for 12 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.

The value and denomination ONE CENT are in two lines within a wreath of two olive branches; around above, SARAWAK; below the wreath, the date 1930. The mint mark H of the Birmingham Mint (previously known as Heaton and Sons) is above the date.

Unlike the 1920 issue, the design is like that of earlier one cent coins.
