At first glance, this is just another RM1 note.

But there's one fine detail that many have not noticed - our first Agong's name is somewhere on the note!

What, where?!

Facebook page Himpumnan Gambar Lawak posted a series of images which shows the Agong's name inked on the Royal Headdress.

The post has since gone viral on social media, with over 3,500 shares.

Still can't see it?

Yup, it's right there!

The figure on the Malaysian Ringgit is none other than our first Agong - Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong Pertama Almarhum Tuanku Abdul Rahman ibni Almarhum Tuanku Muhammad.

Tuanku Abdul Rahman of Negeri Sembilan was elected first Yang di-Pertuan Agong or Paramount Ruler of Independent Malaya on 3 August 1957 for a five-year term. His Majesty began his reign as YDPA on 31 August 1957 and was officially installed on 4 September 1957.

His Majesty had been the ruler of Negeri Sembilan for 24 years before being elected as the first Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

It's not just the RM1 note! The name can be found on RM5, RM10, RM20, and RM100 notes as well.
