How does the Australian dollar trade against the Malaysian ringgit historically?

The Australian dollar was introduced in 1966 to replace the Australian pound. At the time, the dollar was maintained under the Bretton Woods system. Under this agreement, most currencies were pegged to the price of gold, but the Australian dollar was effectively pegged to the British pound. The Australian dollar at the time of its launch was 0.8 per 1 British pound.

The Malaysian ringgit (unofficially, the Malaysian dollar) was introduced in 1967, a year after the Australian dollar’s introduction, and replaced the Malaya and British Borneo dollar. At the time, Malaysia was a participating member of the sterling area — like the Australian dollar — and its new currency was originally valued at 8.57 per British pound.

In 1997, a financial crisis erupted in Asia. The Aussie dollar strengthened and went from 2.079857 per ringgit in 1997 to 3.05344 per ringgit in 2005. With government corruption and the election of Prime Minister Najib Razak in 2009, the ringgit has remained consistently weak against the Australian dollar — between 2.8 to 3.3 ringgits per Aussie dollar.

Bottom line

When exchanging Australian dollars for Malaysian ringgits, find a provider that offers two-sided quotes to understand the spread they charge. If they show you only the buy or sell rate — but not both — consider looking elsewhere. Ultimately, the closer you can get to the mid-market rate, the better the deal.
