Malacca Sultanate ancient amulets unearthed in Malaysia

At the stroke of midnight on April 30, the company, carrying out a hunt for a multi-billion Ringgit treasure belonging to the Malacca Sultanate on Pulau Nangka stumbled upon two bronze medallion-like artefacts. Each medallion measures around 6 centimetres. They are believed to be ancient Majapahit amulets from the Majapahit empire. Majapahit was one of the last major empires of the region and is considered to be one of the greatest and most powerful empires in the history of South-east Asia. The study carried out by the relevant quarter revealed that the artefacts could not possibly be ancient coins, as speculated by many, because words of ancient Javanese mantra were carved on them. The possible link between the amulets and the Malacca Sultanate and Pulau Nangka, is yet to be proved.
