There are no RM500 or RM1000 notes, both of which were withdrawn in 1998 and ceased to be legal tender in July 1999. Bank Negara reintroduced the RM1 banknote into circulation in November 2000, the sixth and last denomination to be issued in the current local currency note series. With the reissuance of the RM1 note, RM2 notes will be gradually withdrawn from circulation (although the RM1 coins will still be accepted). Click here for currency conversion.
