The Malaysian Currency :  Circulation Notes

Past Series - RM100

The front features of DYMM the First Yang Di Pertuan Agong bordered by a design pattern based on Malaysian silver tray. The background design was based on songket, ornaments, and Bidayuh (Sarawak) bamboo carving, and intricate geometrical patterns. Ukiran architectural frieze surmounts the Bank's name. To the right of the $100 denomination at the bottom was a design based on the Iban (Sarawak) carved hornbill. Further to the right (at the centre) were intricate patterns of ukiran architectural ornaments. The see-through symbol features a motif from the 'crocodile' cannon.

The back presents a vignette of the National Mosque in Kuala Lumpur, against a background of Bidayuh (Sarawak) bamboo carvings. Orchid patterns appear above the Bank's name. The predominant colour of the note was violet.
