Then we don't need to pay and carry around one cent coins anymore, not that anyone nowadays carries one cent coins. I think its more of when we go to retail stores or F&B outlets that gives back change ... example here's your change RM10.08 ... what do you do with the Eight Cents?
I think most people don't even keep it anymore!!
Some facts you most probably won't know about the 1 sen coin. Its the longest coin used in Malaysia, which has been in tender for over 162 years. And if you wanna read more about the history of one sen coins, go check out what Danny Tan our numismatist says.
So how does this Bye Bye to 1 Sen coins effect us. Take note that in the very near future all transactions will be rounded up. The Table
Actual - Rounded
RM88.01/02 - RM88.00
RM88.03/04 - RM88.05
RM88.06/07 - RM88.05
RM88.08/09 - RM88.10
SO start a new habit, start carrying 5 cents!! :)
