116-MYR

Last 120 days

Text Box: 	On June 12, 1967 the Malaysian dollar replaced the Malaya and British Borneo dollar at par. The Malaysian dollar was issued by the new central bank, Bank Negara Malaysia.
	The Malay names ringgit and sen were officially adopted as the sole official names in August 1975. Previously they had been known officially as dollars and cents in English and ringgit and sen in Malay, and in some parts of the country this usage continues.
	The use of the dollar sign "$" (or "M$") was not replaced by "RM" (Ringgit Malaysia) until the 1990s, though internationally "MYR" (MY being the country code for Malaysia) is more widely used.
