MALAYSIA, various pre-unification coins
    Modern Malaysia consists of the Malay peninsula, half of the island of Borneo, and some other islands.  Very large number of coin types were made from the 15th through 19th centuries, with only the smallest fraction of representative types included in the Krause-Mishler "Standard Catalogs" (more, but not a complete listing, in Saran Singh's "Standard Catalogue").

NOTE: Things like this were made in fancy shapes, mostly of animals.  Almost all of the fancies on the market are modern fakes.  The people I have shown these pieces to think they are genuine.  I have a batch of these ingots, various weights, including smaller and larger than the indicated range, and also a small quantity is available for wholesale.  Please inquire.
