Ampang, 22nd November 2023 – In celebration of Zoo Negara’s 60th anniversary this year, HABIB, one of Malaysia’s most beloved jewellery brands, has pledged a donation of RM100,000 and released its latest HABIB x Zoo Negara 999.9 gold wafer coin collection. This marks a momentous occasion for both brands and commemorates the long-standing commitment HABIB has in carrying out its social responsibility and aiding in Zoo Negara’s role for conservation and education.
The HABIB x Zoo Negara Collection 2023 is a limited-edition of 999.9 gold wafers which are thematically inspired by the appearance of dawn in the wilds, signifying the way animals begin a new day and the beginning of a new chapter for Zoo Negara. The limited-edition gold wafers come in six different designs inscribed with iconic animals found in the zoo, namely the white Bengal tiger, giant panda, golden pheasant, African lion, giraffe, and the king cheetah.
These gold wafers are not only ideal for collectors and gift-giving, but also serve as a tangible introduction to investment, especially for children who are easing into the habit of saving money while learning to appreciate gold and its value. HABIB also hopes that these gold wafers will serve as a more creative and meaningful token of appreciation for our flora and fauna.
With market gold prices significantly increasing in value, people are now more aware of the value of gold and how gold is no longer just exclusively for adornment; it is now seen as a means of investment. HABIB’s limited-edition Zoo Negara gold wafers make a perfect choice for those who wish to start investing in gold.
Championing the “HABIB x Zoo Negara” campaign is Mirsham Meer, Senior Manager of HABIB Group’s Executive Chairman’s Office; who is the youngest son of Dato’ Sri Meer Habib, Executive Chairman of HABIB Group and Datin Sri Zarida Noordin, Executive Director of HABIB Group.
“We are thrilled to continue this collaboration with Zoo Negara, especially in time for their 60th anniversary. This campaign holds a special place in our hearts as preserving heritage is core to who we are as a brand. The new collection is representative of the bright outlook that awaits Zoo Negara and the hope it continues its legacy as a cherished national gem that future generations will be able to experience,” said Mirsham Meer.
This marks HABIB’s 2nd time collaborating with Zoo Negara. During the pandemic period, HABIB donated a total of RM100,000 and released the 1st edition of the “HABIB x Zoo Negara” 999.9 gold wafer coin collection in December 2020.
The HABIB x Zoo Negara Collection 2023 is now available at all HABIB showrooms, e-commerce platforms (www.habibjewels.com and TikTok @habibjewelsofficial) and marketplace channels such as Shopee, Lazada and Zalora. online platforms.
