- Syiling maksudnya ada nilai muka sama ada ringgit atau sen. Syiling sah digunakan / diperlakukan di Malaysia
- Di Malaysia, hanya Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) sahaja yang boleh mengeluarkan MATAWANG, ingat lagi kontroversi dirham/dinar Kelantan?
- Pendapat saya. tanpa "LEGAL TENDER", koleksi ini lebih sesuai jika dinamakan medallion atau medal kenangan.
Kalau ikut pengetahuan saya (maaf jika silap), merupakan Medallion Peringatan kedua keluaran Public Gold selepas Pertabalan Agong pada tahun 2012 (dikeluarkan dengan nilai 10 Dirham). Medallion Anak Malaysia ini dijual dengan harga RM950 dengan ketulenan kandungan perak .999 dengan tempaan cuma 188 keping sahaja. Bersaiz diameter 50mm (lebih besar berbanding dengan syiling Enggang yang cuma berdiameter 44mm). Satu usaha yang bagus daripada Public Gold untuk memperingati sambutan hari kebangsaan.
