Journey into the heart of North Borneo, (present day Sabah), Malaysia, with these fascinating 5¢ coins. Once known to maritime traders as the Land Below the Wind, because of the shelter it provided during typhoons, North Borneo lured young Englishmen who tamed the jungle and built rubber plantations, hoping to become rich. It was during this exciting era that these copper-nickel 5¢ pieces were struck. Today, North Borneo has vanished into history. Not only are these the only 5¢ pieces from British North Borneo, but they were struck for just 8 years between 1903-1941. You`ll own genuine, low-mintage North Borneo coinage recalling the bygone era of wild jungles and lush plantations!
