Malaysian 1972/1976 and 1986/1987 $5
My Malaysia Ringgit collection is growing. The top $5 is my latest acquisition and the lower one arrived about a month back. In terms of issuance, the top $5 was issued in 1972-1976 while the lower one was from the 1986-1987 series but this particular note was issued in 1995. There are two differences between the actual 1986-1987 series, one is the signature of the Governor (original signed by Tan Sri Dato Jaffar Hussein, the latter signed by Tan Sri Dato Ahmad Mohd Don) and the other is the disappearance of the cross from the design (seen on the reverse).
