I search on the catalog if the 20 sen from malaysia coin change the design. Just wonder in 2006 the letters in "M_A_L_A_Y_S_I _A" is far each other. Is this one of the variety of the coin? What you think?

@bonn, I agree that the spacing is different on these coins. Interestingly, I don't see this variety mentioned on the numista page for this coin:

Consider reaching out to them to add it!

These coins are all different years, it is possible (and likely) that the design was changed between years.

The 2002 definitely has a different design, notice how the middle point of the M is even with the bottom of the left and right side.

The 2006 appears different but I believe it is due to die deterioration making the letters thinner. Not a change in design.
