1Malaysia Touch n Go Card
In line with moving towards a “cashless society” in Malaysia, more people are using the electronic payment system. Even banks are migrating from the regular card for account-holder to debit cards.
If you are a card collector, you would want to get your hands on this Touch 'n Go card which features the theme of 1Malaysia. The one in the picture is a mock-up, of course.
Like all Touch 'n Go cards, this RM10 card can be used to pay for public transportation, parking charges and at certain fast-food outlets. Strange that there are 5.9 million Touch ’n Go cardholders in the country but only 3.2 million use the card to pay toll charges. The rest must be in collectors card-albums, I suppose.
If you intend to get one of these 1Malaysia cards, hurry because only a total of 150,000 cards have been issued. They can be bought at Touch ’n Go sales offices along the highways at RM10 each. The card has a value of RM10, its cost of RM10 has been waived.
