The museum houses a vast collection of early Malay coinage — from Malay Sultanate, cowrie shells, knife money to replicas of ingots in the shape of animals and insects.

If that is not enough, you could also take a  look at the Central Bank’s art collection.


The Federal Bank also provide guided tours for groups of visitors from schools, universities and non-profit organisations. You could join for free. But book in advance.
