One Cent 1937, Coin from Sarawak (demonetised 1953)
CoinOne Cent 1937

The one cent coin was the most popular denomination of the Sarawak dollar. Coins issued in 1937 circulated for only five 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.
