Kelantan Dirham Silver Coin (1 Dirham)
Kelantan Government’s blessing
With the World Islamic Mint granting authority for the Kelantan Government to strike the dirhams, this state-issued “currency” is seen by many Malaysians as a better wealth protection alternative to fiat paper currency. In accordance to the Quran and also, the Sunna of the Prophet Muhammad, dirhams are one of the most stable currencies that the world has ever seen. A chicken at the time of the Prophet, salla’llahu alaihi wa sallam, cost one dirham; today, 1,400 years later, a chicken costs approximately one dirham. That is the protection that it can give to us all.
The dirham plays a significant role not only in its usage of as a currency, but also, a important part of history in the Islamic faith. So, to our dear Muslims or even non-muslims, this Kelantanese dirham is a collection that one cannot miss.
- One of the most recognized Dirhams in Malaysia – high in demand
- Significant usage of it as a form of currency between willing parties
- Backed by the Government of Kelantan
*The Islamic Dirham is a specific weight of pure silver equivalent to 2.975 grams.
