As Malaysians, we’ve experienced plenty of firsts despite our nation’s relatively short history. From gaining our independence; to the formation of our country; to a historic change in government just a few months back; there never seems to be a shortage of change for Malaysia.
By now, many of you would’ve been familiar with that iconic image of our first ever Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, standing victoriously on the grandest stage of ’em all; with 1 hand raised up high, declaring the sovereignty of our lands by repeating a simple word – “MERDEKA”, echoed ecstatically by all in attendance; reverberating through the entire peninsula on the morning of 31st August, 1957, marking our first steps as a nation.
Of course it didn’t stop there. Less than a decade later, we found a new reason to celebrate. With the help from our brothers and sisters from across the shore, Malaya finally completed its transformation into Malaysia as we know today, with the inclusion of Sabah and Sarawak into the federation on the 16th of September, 1963. Our little multi-cultural family grew even more vibrant, and our rich heritage much more colourful.
This year brought us another victory of sorts. We saw the revitalization of the Malaysian spirit, as thousands of voters came out and made their voices heard, calling for a change of the old guard. Now surpassing the 60 year-mark for Malaya’s independence from our colonial oppressors, we bear witness to yet another new era for the country – ‘Malaysia Baru’ – with interesting and exciting developments ahead.
In conjunction with the Merdeka and Malaysia Day celebrations, we are proud to unveil the 2018 1+1+1 Merdeka Dirham Silver Coin by Nubex. The 1+1+1 concept celebrates the 3 key stages in our country’s illustrious history – from our independence in 1957; to the formation of Malaysia in 1963; to the recent ‘victory of the people’ just a few months back.
In line with Nubex’s credo of preservation of wealth, the 2018 1+1+1 Merdeka Dirham Silver Coin by Nubex also serves as a call to independence from the woes and restrictions of FIAT money and riba (interests), to bring the concept of wealth and money back to its original state – with its worth weighed in gold; and specifically for the 2018 1+1+1 Merdeka Dirham Silver Coin by Nubex – in silver.
In case we didn’t make it clear enough, this Merdeka coin isn’t just 1 Dirham, but 3 Dirhams-in-one (hence 1+1+1)! The 2018 1+1+1 Merdeka Dirham Silver Coin by Nubex is available for purchase here. Grab a piece of history and embrace wealth independence today!
