In view of the low price and cheap metal, it is likely to have been circulating, but you'd need to find a few circulated specimen to be sure. The silver version is of course non-circulating. I just wonder why all Malaysian cu-ni commemorative coins are 33.5 mm while Numista lists the standard $1 coin as 34 mm.
