Breaking News 22 Jun 2017  : 
IBNS Book of the Year 2016
This book was just won the IBNS Book of the Year 2016 award from the International Banknote Society (IBNS). This is the first time a Malaysian publication has won this prestigious international award. Hearties congratulations to Mr. Saran Singh and the publication team.

After about a year of working closely with Mr. Saran Singh, the book is finally launched, much to our relief. The episode started when I met with Saran quite by accident and he was talking about the book project he was working on and he need some assistance with researching on certain area of rubber export coupons. So one thing led to another and we ended up doing not just the research and fact check but also designed the entire book and its layout.

Now everyone who is into numismatics will know who the man is. For the uninitiated, he is a well known numismatic writer who as published no less than 6 books on Malaysian numismatics. His earliest publication going as far back as 1978.

Below are some of the slides displayed at the book launch event along with some of the pages of the book, including the table of contents.



We will be publishing a detailed story of the project very soon, so stay tuned.
