Malaysia 1st Series RM1 Colour Error?

This 1st series Malaysian Banknote was engraved and printed by Bradbury Wilkinson & Co Ltd.
The note measures 121mm x 64mm and bears the portrait of Yang Di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Abdul Rahman, first King of Malaysia. This note has straight thread security line which is of the first variety type.

What makes this piece interesting is that the blue is of a different shade from the rest, whereas the multi-coloured central ornamental pieces retains it's original colours, could this be a colour error or the handiwork of someone?

Any of my Malaysian fellow collectors care to comment?


  1. Hi,
    Just to point out that the 1st king is not Tunku Abdul Rahman, but Tuanku Abdul Rahman. Tunku is the Prime Minister, while Tuanku is the king...

  2. Thanks for pointing out the difference, my apologies.
    Title info was taken from a well known Malaysian banknote publisher's catalog.
