Remarks: The theme of the new Malaysian Ringgit banknote series, "Wawasan 2020" reflects Malaysia's
economic development and achievement towards a fully developed country. Featured on the RM5 polymer
banknote is the Rhinoceros Hornbill (Buceros rhinoceros), one of the largest and most magnificent hornbill species
in the world. Found in low densities throughout various rainforests in the country, this beautiful, broad-winged and
long-tailed forest bird plays an important role in the customs and traditional ceremonies in Sarawak which is known
as 'Bumi Kenyalang' or 'Land of Hornbills'. Hornbill is also seen as a symbol of strength and courage by the native
communities of Sarawak.
