Gold Dinar And Silver Dirham By Kelantan State

Coin collectors might not want to miss out the opportunity to own the newly launched gold dinar and silver dirham by Kelantan State government which was officially introduced on 12 August 2010. This debut has made Kelantan the first state in Malaysia to introduce the gold dinar and silver dirham as its official currency.

The gold dinar and silver dirham is managed by Kelantan Gold Trade (KGT), a subsidiary of Kelantan Mentri Besar Incorporated (PMBK). The state government would strive to expand the use of gold dinar and silver dirham in its transactions, including the payment of civil servants' remuneration.
