What are their differents?

If you are about 20 years above, these 2 pieces of RM5 ringgit denomination must not strange for you. However, do you know RM 5 actually has 2 different designs existed in the market before?

The main different among these 2 notes are the flagpole, the Diagram 1 shows the beam flagpole and Diagram 2 shows the cross flagpole. It is the "design error" that cross flagpole is wrong, if compared to the real situation at that time(official statement of Bank Negara) . Some of the collectors also viewed that it may be due to the religious factor that conflicted with Islam.

It is only happened once in Malaysia Banknotes printing history.
