Altimet is a contemporary entertainer in Malaysia and brave enough to warn the evil effects of usury to society.
Altimet’s song named “Bunga”, a Malay word for interest on loans, exposes three things that make up the usury bedrock. Altimet’s Bunga brings the audience’s attention to focus on usury. Second, Bunga warns against the danger of paper money. Finally, Bunga warns against the charging of interest on loans.
The design on the obverse face of the coin is the effigy of Altimet himself wearing a headgear called “tengkolok” in Malay, as worn by brave Malay Nobels and Worriers of yesteryears signifies the nobility of actions fortified by the courage of worriers. The reverse of the coin is Altimet Logo in geometric.
The card tells the story of our current predicament. The shadow puppet on the card signifies us the consumers, oblivious to be under the spell of a usurious system by virtue of our desires. The folded origami of paper money has morphed the paper to be beautiful flowers close to our hearts.
