PMG Grading World’s Largest Legal Tender Banknotes

Posted on 2/20/2018

The new commemorative note from Malaysia is larger than a letter-sized sheet of paper.

PMG has certified the first submissions of 2017 Malaysian 600 Ringgit commemorative notes, which were recently issued to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Federation of Malaya Independence Agreement. The commemorative notes measure a record-breaking 370 x 220 (14.5 inches by 8.6 inches), a size that makes them the world’s largest legal tender banknotes.

These notes can be encapsulated with a special PMG label that features the crescent moon and 14-point star from the Malaysian flag, elements that are also present on the front of the note. The note’s front also features the 15 monarchs who have presided over the country in the past 60 years. Its back shows nine of the original signatories of the independence agreement.
