Governor of Bank Negara

There are many collectors whom collect different banknotes with different Governor's signature. It is because even though the design of the banknote could be the identical from the same series, but different Governor's signature gives different value. Obviously, there are Governors whom stand longer in position and thus his signature appears fairly common on the circulation note. On the other hand, governors whom hold position for a short period of time will not have their signature appear more commonly. This creates a "rare" situation for collectors to search and add into their collection.

This happen the same for Malaysian banknotes. There are total of six (6) Governors from the issuance of 1st Series (1967) to the present 3rd Series (present). The following are the Governors of Malaysia throughout the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Series of Malaysian Banknote.

Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) has the sole currency issuing authority in Malaysia. Therefore, the governor of BNM is given the authority to sign on the notes. In many cases, the notes are signed by Governor of Central Bank or Treasurer of Finance Department. However, there is also note that signed by King i.e. Brunei note which is signed by Sultan.
