From the South China Sea and Malay state of Kelantan comes this century-old coin. The 1903 tin 1 Pitis was issued for 1 year only, while Kelantan was ruled by Sultan Muhammad IV. The Sultan ruled with the support of Siam, and signed the Anglo-Siamese Treaty of 1902, recognizing that Kelantan would accept two British administrators to help govern, ending a diplomatic conflict. The Arabic inscriptions on this unique coin reflect the Muslim influence on this culturally diverse nation. Bring a touch of the exotic to your collection, with this historic coin that`s still in Extra Fine/About Uncirculated condition even after a century.
