18.02.2012 | 全新硬幣

[Volume 7 Issue 2, #1328]
全新一寬嘅硬幣, 大家見過沒呀?? 我集齊5,10,20仙喇, 唯獨50仙就無緣見到.. 其實第一次收到新硬幣, 第一反應就係「點解俾游戲機token我??!!」, 再睇真啲「做乜咁似歐羅嘅??!!」.. 全新設計的確係細啲輕啲, 唔理係為咗方便攜帶, 定係偷工減料, 都係一樣咁用架啦~~
have you all seen the new series of coins?? i have all 5,10,20 sen coins but still have not seen 50 sen yet.. when i first got them as change, my first reaction was "why am i given arcade tokens??!!", took a closer look then and i asked myself "why are they so euro coins??".. well, the new design is smaller and lighter, not gonna comment if the rationale behind is for convenience or cost-cutting, we still have to use them, correct??

  2. Now it's tough to differentiate by putting hand into pocket only. 50 cents and 20 cents almost the same size. What a unfriendly idea to change :(

    1. I agree. It is easier when all the coins have different size & weight. If cannot see, have to "raba-raba" the coins properly to know its value.

    2. Agree, that was my first reaction upon receiving the 20 cent. Was wondering how am I going to differentiate the coins if I do purchase at "darker" place? Pasar malam or those night stall standing at kaki lima?

  3. I've seen all, but so far only collected a '10 cent', hehe.

  5. We have 5Cent, 10cent, 1peso, 5peso, and 10peso coins here... 5 and 10 cents are rarely used...

    ReplyDelete
  6. they used our national heroes for our coins... and us are quite bigger.. the 5 and 10 peso bill is more like an inch big

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. An inch bigger? That could play havoc on some wallet sizes, couldn't they? Oh dear!

      Hope our Malaysian new notes will not create that problem.

    2. We hardly have National Heroes, that's why we only put the parliament and flowers on the kites!!! Muahahahaha!

  9. Smaller coins can be quite a challenge for big hands - and people with poor eyesight.

    1. How about the sight-impaired? Susah wor...

    2. My hands are small, but I need to strain my eyes smaller too to recognize the value of the coin.

    1. Arcade coins are heavier, definitely!

      Delete
    2. I'm afraid the (new) loose change will get 'lost' in my purse or pocket, well, they are kinda light and I haven't adjust to it yet @____@

      Delete
    3. Arcade Coin compare with these new Coin! Arcade Coin for the WIN :D

      Delete
  13. Those coins really lighter than the current ones. =/ And seriously not used with it. but now almost eveyrone using it, i need to double check if given the correct coins. LOL

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. @Caroline, I got the same symptoms that what you did. I triple CHECK ok? XD

      Delete
  14. Kekeke more like cost cutting to me! :p

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm still confused. LOL

    Because usually when I fish out coins from my wallet/pocket - I judge it by feel instead of looking at them closely.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am ever the cynical. Cost cutting or is it to give someone a big contract?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Complain also, I guess we just have to accept it and use it until the time comes when the powers that be suddenly decided to discontinue the coin for whatever reason and change to another design. Right?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think I got some but never too notice! OMG! Did I paid extra with the new coins since I never really bother to check?

  21. the 50 cents is around our current 20 cents or even smaller.

    My first time getting it, I actually returned it to the shop keeper, and said "wrong coin!" coz i thought it was some other country's currency

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I guess I would do it too! Like we get S'pore coin instead of our own. xD

      Delete
    2. @Isaac what you stated above is correct because 50cent and 20cent is same color and almost same size, that is so headache when give them to counter especially in 7-11. Lucky my place 7-11 cashier very friendly and sort my confusion out hehe

      Delete
    3. Not the 7-11 at my place. :(

      Better be careful there, I suppose. And when paying for the "babu roti" too. Sometimes buy bread too early in the morning or late evening, too dark cannot see properly. ;p

      Delete
    4. @lina is time to wear a safety helmet with a light, then you can see it very clear! Tada! :D

      Delete
    5. Hahaha, no time to grab the helmet with light when the babu roti arrived. You know la, they come and go very fast one. Peepoo, peepoo, and they are gone...

      Delete
  22. the new coins cant be use to pay the parking tickets, or water machine... i dont think it can be use in any of the coins machine also... more reason to spend more money to make this machines friendlier with the new coins, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  23. First of all, I would like to say Thank You to Malaysia because Malaysia itself is down-grading the coin thickness and quality. As in Down-Grading our Malaysian Faces which is make us more SHAME when some other people from other country compare our coin with their COINS!

    RM 5 is not enough? Need to down-grade the coin summore. Walao so cham meh Malaysia . . .

    ReplyDelete
  24. So Far . . . In my workplace, I haven't receive new coins from my customer yet. Else need to take note and different shade it.

    The best thing is, NEW 50cent and NEW 20cent is SAME COLOR and almost same size. This is why I hate this so much and it is like down grading Malaysia punya Muka . . .

    ReplyDelete
  25. What You and Caroline mention is correct. It is definitely looks like ARCADE Token! Come on man, this kind of coins also dare to show on Malaysia or World Market, those high class people will think that Malaysia is cheap skate or what . . . Booring!

    ReplyDelete
  26. You know the most awkward moment when these coins come into my hand. I think it is Rupiah or Indonesia Money! Dam Embarrassing alright? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  27. So euro coins? Sorry, no comment when comparing with other countries because so far I only visited Malaysia, supporting cuti-cuti malaysia

  28. I think I saw Thai and Singapore coins before and their sizes are almost the same as our old 10cent and 20cent. Now our sizes have down-graded and get smaller.... Sad case, because it reminds me on the country currency exchange rate, our currency getting 'smaller' too.

    ReplyDelete
  29. oh.. I hv got the whole set..50 sen is very much smaller..

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ooh why coins are not made of paper ya? :p :p or plastic!

    ReplyDelete
  31. 我暂时都係收到5,10同50仙,唯独20仙未见到,迟啲应该会周街都见到架喇!

    ReplyDelete
  32. 係好轻便,摸上手一啲质感都冇,我初初仲以为係假架!

    ReplyDelete
  33. 係唔係偷工减料就唔知,相信係要减低发行嘅成本。

    ReplyDelete
  34. 係吖,初初我仲以为係乜嘢token,又真係几可乱真啊,差一啲拒收!呵呵呵~~~

    ReplyDelete
  35. 我相信旧款嘅收银角机暂时仲未可以接受新硬币,所以最好准备番啲旧硬币,咁就万无一失囉!

    ReplyDelete
  36. 我噚日唱馬幣仲以爲嗰兩替屋人員畀錯硬幣我,睇落都幾別致,幾特別啊!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ya...the new coins do look like arcade tokens. Tsk! Tsk!

    ReplyDelete
  38. 我很久没看到过token了。。。
    新的硬币也没什么看到,可能刚开始使用吧!
    拿到的时候我也拍张照留念啦!

  41. The other day, I was looking for a 10sen and thought how come I got some foreign coins in my purse. While I was looking at it, the young waiter told that was the new 10sen coin. OIC, said the blind man.
