Commemorative Objects (7/9)

The Singapore River has made its mark on many commemorative objects, including banknotes, stamps and coin medallions. When Singapore issued her first currency in 1967, the reverse side of the old five-dollar note showcased Singapore River and Singapore’s beginnings as a port city. The river was also featured in 20-cent stamps that were issued in 1990 and the Singapore-Egypt joint stamps issued in 2011. Most recently, at the 2019 Singapore International Coin Fair, a medallion made with 1⁄4oz 999 fine silver featuring the past and present Singapore River, was launched.
