How does the Australian dollar trade against the Malaysian ringgit historically?
The Malaysian ringgit and the Australian dollar were introduced roughly around the same time in the late 1960s. Both currencies replaced its British currency, with 0.8 AUD worth 1 GBP and 8.57 MYR worth 1 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.
