Malaysians can look forward to having a new central bank governor in less than 30 days' time. The
current governor Tan Sri Dato' Sri Dr. Zeti Akhtar Aziz, the 7th in line since the central bank was established in 1959; will be stepping down by end of March 2016 when her contract expires.

With 16 years at the helm, she is the longest serving BNM Governor yet. She is also the first woman to be appointed for this prestigious but challenging job. To her credit she was won many accolades, awards and recognition from renowned international organizations such as  EuroMoney, University of Pennsylvannia (Wharton) just to name a few. In 2011 Bloomberg reported that she was considered as a potential candidate for the International Monetary Fund (IMF). If anything, she has put Malaysia on the financial services industry map.



The Star paper did a very extensive coverage last Saturday (27 Feb 2016). I have attached the headline and two full pages of the article on the"iron lady of BNM" and there is also interesting information of the BNM itself.

For collectors - this will be an exciting time where we hunt for the last prefix of the banknotes signed by Zeti while looking forward to collect first prefixes of the signature of our new governor!

Base on our findings and a quick survey on social media, these are the UNCONFIRMED last prefixes as at 28 June 2017 we found so far :

Kindly be informed that the last prefixes can change anytime and the information here is BY NO MEANS FINAL.
